    I was going to bid on some spotted aussie bantam ducks but the guy said they were between a call duck and a mallard. I was wondering what the difference size wise is. are call ducks easier to raise? Crystal

    Call ducks are small, but they're really loud. What you make up for in space, you may lose in silence. [​IMG] They were bred to be used to lure ducks to a water source for hunting (live decoys). You may want to consider that before getting some.

    I raise White Call Duck and they are a little bit louder than most ducks . They also love to fly around my farm house. I love it when they do this and hate the idea of them being put into a little cage like I have seen some people try to do.[​IMG]
