    Do you know what colour the parents of the little call duck were? It may help to narrow down the possibilities. The head colouring looks similar to some blue Runners I have hatched- but the body looks like a buff- its just so hard when they first hatch as the colours can change so much when they grow feathers and then again with each molt. It is very cute though,, such a sweet face.

    white maybe? it looks yellow in the first picture but i dont really know.. pekin ducklings are yellow so i assume its the same for calls & other breeds. The head is a little darker though so maybe white body with a little darker head?

    just a guess.. [​IMG]

    I'd guess fawn and white because of the dark patch on the head, just a wild guess though.
