    Thinking of buying call ducks? You can find numerous call ducks for sale on Bird Trader, but in this guide we examine why these intriguing birds make for such wonderful pets. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    Call ducks are a bantam breed of duck – this means they are smaller than many traditional ducks you’ll find advertised. Similar in appearance to mallard ducks, these lively birds come in an array of colours, including white, grey, buff, black and white and chocolate.

    If you’re looking for call ducks for sale, why not consider buying a small flock of these ducks to enjoy the variety they have to offer? Call ducks are renowned for their active personalities, and you could spend many a happy hour watching these birds go about their daily routine.




    Call Ducks For Sale – Keeping Call Ducks

    Call ducks are fairly self-sufficient birds, so as long as you provide a stable living environment for them to enjoy, little maintenance will be needed beyond daily feeding. You can use a general duck feed mix to satisfy the appetite of these birds, although feel free to treat them occasionally with bread and other treats.

    Provide a secure duck pen where the call ducks can enjoy an active lifestyle free from the threat of predators such as foxes. Don’t dismiss the importance of providing a spacious pen for these ducks – they may be small but they require plenty of room.

    The most important component of the duck pen will be the water supply – not only to satisfy thirst, but also to keep these playful ducks active. Call ducks will require plenty of sunken areas and water trays in the pen where they can splash around, stretch their wings and cool off during the summer months.

    If space in your garden is limited, provide small pans of water at the corners of the pen. As a rule of thumb, call ducks should have enough water available to submerge their head – so make the water supply stays topped up on a regular basis.
