    First. . . I love them, at any rate - lol!

    I've wanted some for ages, and I bought these at the Ohio Nationals on Saturday when I
    picked up some SLW pairs from the Foley's.

    These were purchased from different folks at the show -

    Since people will tell beginner buyers, like I am to Call Ducks, anything and these weren't expensive
    pairs, I wanted insight on colors to and quality - which I am totally fine with them being only pet quality
    since they were bought for their unbearable cuteness only!

    They look nice, it is sometimes hard to get a good idea on the quality just from pictures. Did you get all 3 pair from the same person? They are a pair of butterscotch, grey, and blue fawn, the second to last pic is the best one.

    Thanks! No - from 3 breeders. . .
    Those are the colors I was told, but I wasn't sure on the Butterscotch for sure. . . glad to hear that is the case!

    They are at least Breeder Quality. (To my eyes though.)

    I see a Butterscotch pair, Blue Fawn pair, and a Grey Pair.

    Congrats! Call Ducks are very addicting! [​IMG]

    So far, the males are getting along.

    I will separate in the spring for breeding and hatching eggs though.

    I think I'm lost to Call ducks now - lol! I will be the crazy lady with 200 eventually.
