    So I just hatched out my first call duckling! This is actually my first call duck period LOL. I got the eggs from Zeagler Farms last month. So I had it marked as an australian spotted greenhead.... but whoops.... looks like it might not be? I am no expert obviously so what color is it?
    She has pretty much every color I am waiting for a BEI egg and a cluster of magpies to hatch lol this was just the first guy to come out.

    Well she doesnt have silvers only greens. She said it could be a blue bibbed but based it on bill color. Let me say this here, this was taken with my cell phone so it isnt that great of a pic. I think it could be a snowy she hatched out a few today and I saw the pics, they look very similar!

    yep would be more on the snowy side to me than a spot. I have those, the green heads pretty much look like mallard babies, blueheads same but pale in color, silvers almost totally washed out in color like this one. But she couldnt make silvers if all she has is grenheads so would have to be snowies or something similar

    yeah she has greenheads, snowys, whites, butters, i want to say pastels too, and BEIs but I KNOW it isnt a BEI she said she got them from the greenheads, but I figured they would look more mallard like. lol. So I suppose it is a wait and see but most likely it is snowy then huh?
