    Hello, we just received a new duck. He/she is approximately 4 weeks, we were told that he/she is a blue call duck. I haven't been able to find anything about that type online. I was wondering if that may be another name for a different duck. I'm new to ducks. We just bought our first group of ducklings two weeks ago. (They are Peking) I was thinking that he might resemble a Blue Swedish Duck. Can anyone help identify our new feathered friend? TYIA

    Yeah, it looks like a Blue Swedish to me as well. That is definitely not a Call Duck of any kind. ;)

    Here's an updated picture of "Timmy" or perhaps "Tia", the jury is still out. We've been wondering if he should be bigger by now (he's 12 weeks). Would you still consider him a Blue Swedish or perhaps a call duck? TYIA

    Wow, it's tiny! Maybe it's a Call Duck crossbreed? The bill is a bit big/long to be a pure Call. Would be interesting to hear other people's opinions on this one, too! Whatever it is, he/she is very pretty! :)

    Thanks for your opinion. [​IMG] I'm really curious what she/he is.
