    KATY , YOUR CALL DUCKS ARE BEAUTIFUL! I hope mine Hatch. I hear they are harder to hatch then other breeds. If they do not Hatch I will check with the Local 4H and see if I can purchase some. they are hard to find in this area so I ordered eggs.
    Dee, They are a very small duck weighing only 1 - 1 1/2 pounds.

    I think that call ducks were originally bred to have a inexpensive lure to "call" wild ducks.

    I think they are called Call Ducks because hunters used them to call wild ducks to them? Something like that..... I'm sure someone more well versed will respond [​IMG]

    Yes, at one time hunters used them to call in wild ducks but it is illegal to do that now.
