    Does anyone know where i can see pics of what show quality call ducklings look like? I know they have the short bills and little bodies but would just want to compare them to mine when they hatch. [​IMG]

    I don't have pics of the ducklings but, I can offer the following info. The good quality ducklings will hatch about 2/3 the size of the not so good quality ducklings. They will have smaller bills, shorter legs and much smaller heads and the heads will appear rounder than te others. Sometimes tho, even these will not turn out to be show quality. You have to let them get some age on them(5-8 months sometimes) to see what you really have. I hope this helps and sorry I don't have pics to back it up. I have a pic of one of our females that is 1 1/2 years old but, usually the drakes quality throws better ducklings than the hen.
