    but i can't choose [​IMG] i need help! and pics [​IMG] also one of the reasons i got rid of the calls was cause my dog ripped down their fence, and my rouen drake was rapeing the hen, and i didnt want her to get hurt [​IMG]

    also these will be kept in a extra special pen so the hens dont get hurt.

    Explain extra special pen and why you think the hens may get hurt?

    Quote:extra special pen: something that his dog cant rip down

    cause im getting a saxony drake, and he could hurt the call hens if not separated from, couldn't he?

    They shouldn't be kept together during breeding season. However only the calls have a true season, so yes they need seperate housing. Don't forget they are easily taken by every kind of predator flying and ground.

    As far as color goes, they are like potatoe chips, everyone has a favorite, and no one can ever have just one.

    IMHO, I don't even chance putting my calls in with the larger ducks. I've spent a lot of money on my calls ( [​IMG] ) and I would prefer them to live instead of being molested by a 8 pound drake. [​IMG]

    But everyone has their opinion and this is mine.
