IMG_0104 IMG_0109Fairly recently we added call ducks to our family of farm animals.  They look regular ducks, they’re just smaller.  They also have a very distinct call, hence their name.  They’re actually used by hunters to attract other ducks to the area.  We keep them because we like them.  We recently ordered some call duck eggs and placed them under one of our brooding chickens.  We later found out that our female call duck had laid some of her own eggs.  We currently have four baby ducks.  We had a few more, but unfortunately they didn’t make it.  We’re slightly over protective of the four we have, but their momma and the other call ducks seem to be protective of well, so hopefully we won’t lose anymore.
