      Not a hybrid. Pure (domestic) Call Duck again.

      Sorry I didn't realise there were so many different forms of Call duck species are all forms of Mallard cross breeds known as Call Ducks or is this just wishful thinking as it would make life a little easier if they were.

      There are probably over 100 different true domestic forms of Ducks world wide,so plenty more birds out their to add to your confusion!

      Don't say that I already had quite a few and all have been identified I must admit my favourite is the Shoveler x Mallard I picked up at Upton Warren in 2013

      Call Ducks are effectively bantam Mallard in every possible colour. Small size ans a relatively small bill are diagnostic.

      I think you may be having trouble with the difference between domestic and hybrid. The two are not the same thing. Almost all domestic ducks are just domestic forms of mallard - they are all the same species. The only exception is the domestic muscovy, which is derived from the wild muscovy of South America. Sometimes there are hybrids between domestic mallards and domestic muscovies, but otherwise if a duck is domestic it is just a domestic duck not a hybrid.
    There are no comments to display.
