    I've been looking around and am a bit confused .... are these snowy Calls, silver or what? Also, does the dark head on the one indicate a drake? They are young and not quite feathered out fully. TKS!!!!

    I was going to say that the mostly White one looks like a mismarked Blue Magpie Call...except I dunno about that light tan patch on her head. [​IMG] I'd call her a mixed color, with the Magpie pattern. [​IMG]

    And the other one looks more like a Snowy than a Silver to me, but they can overlap so much in appearance that I don't feel very confident even guessing! [​IMG]

    I can tell you that they're not a pair in the same color. They're cute together though! [​IMG]

    Edited to add: Can you voice-sex them yet? They look plenty old enough. I don't know about the darker head, I always rely on voice.

    I haven't been able to voice sex them yet. They both sound pretty peeping to me yet. The whiter one does make a single Mweep sound on occassion & thought that may be the start of a quack. Do they have a "splash" color for Calls?

    Thanks chikky! [​IMG] I think they are the cutest little duckies.
