    Quote:Thanks I actually bought them for my mom she loves them! Their names are Jack and Mabel... I hope to start a nice flock with them. I show and breed Swedish ducks not Calls so this is a bit strange for me.

    I can't offer any show critiques because I don't show/don't know much about showing, but I can say I think they're gorgeous! Butterscotch calls are my favorite, I have a pair myself and I kind of want to add a second pair. [​IMG] Good luck with your wonderful pair!

    Thanks I hope to show them for the first time in December. I would have a heart attack if they did really well!

    Quote:Grays shouldn't have white feathers in their mains-I think it's just the light in the picture that makes the colors look similar to a gray.
    Your butters look like they have nice short bills and necks and puffy little cheeks. The eyes look good.
    As far as color, it's difficult to tell from your pictures, but they are really pretty little things!
    I'd have bought them, too!

    I was thinking he looked like my pastel call.

    Pastel and Butter drakes look really similar I noticed that when I was at a show.

    What should I look for in color?
