    The smaller 3 are ones I hatched. The larger 4 are from the same breeder but I picked them up from her house in NY. I know that my small yellow one is a white. I know I have a snowy and the black one is either a bibbed or magpie. Then I have some greys. Can anyone help with what the dark mallard colored one is? (excuse the dust, we've been plastering another room and dragging it out into this one!)

    Yup, they're Calls. Definitely not show quality because they wouldn't meet conformation because they're beaks are so large but I saw the parents. This woman has no other ducks but Calls.

    The woman has more than 100 Calls! I was in my glory! I'm not planning on showing them, I just really enjoy the Call ducks. They snuggle right up into my neck and go to sleep. They're just so darn adorable.

    I have 2 dozen eggs from her that I just put into the incubator!

    I'm very jealous. We got ours full grown. Woulda loved to have snoogled them as ducklings. I think calls are beautiful but they are also very pretty with big beaks cos it makes them look like mini ducks rather than call ducks. Your little people are jus fab. Keep us up to date. I totally wanna see all the pretty colours when they grow up. xxxxxxxx
