CALL DUCKS
AWARD-WINNING WATERFOWL

Although my Mother started raising turkeys on the farm (see Our Story page), she now rears call ducks, to show and sell.

THE BIRDS

She has collected numerous awards from different shows, most notably being twice the Reserve Call Duck Champion at the Devon & Cornwall Waterfowl Association annual show. She aims to raise the call ducks so they are quiet and pretty, with most having short beaks.

She also keeps Mandarins and Carolinas wildfowl, which are also for sale.

She keeps 7 colours:

  • White – these are pure white with no black feathers
  • Black – some of these have a wonderful green coloured head
  • Apricot – fawn
  • Butterscotch
  • Magpie
  • Chocolate
  • Caramel

She hatches eggs every year, starting around the end of March and hand-rears them underneath infra-red lamps.

They then go outside onto grass where they enjoy eating slugs and snails and are usually sold at 12 weeks of age.
