Snowy Call Ducks

Snowy Call Ducks (or Silver Call Ducks) are a unique breed of duck with a very boisterous function. Originally, they were bred to serve as hunting decoys, using their loud voices to call in other ducks for hunters.

Now, Snowy Call ducklings and other Call Ducks are bred primarily for show. Their smaller size and cute shape make them a go to bird for the pet owner and hobbyist alike.

The first records of the ingenious breeding and use of Snowy Call ducks come from the Netherlands. However, their place of origin is disputed amongst experts as many believe they originated in the Far East. Originally, all Call Ducks resembled the Mallard ducks, but years of selective breeding have yielded a plethora of coloration patterns.

The Snowy Call ducks are very similar to a Call Ducks with the lush green heads, and blue wing tips. Their difference include a lighter, almost white coloration and lacing on the back and side, and a more deep brown on their chests. The Snowy Call Duck most resembles the Silver Appleyard.

The high energy and delightful aesthetics of a pet Snowy Call Duck makes these birds very sought after by various duck enthusiasts. Their function as hunting tools is less typical today, as their are used primarily for decoration, entertainment. They are extremely popular amongst breeders, hobbyists, and pet owners. However, the difficulty in breeding Snowy Call Ducks and other Call Ducks makes them only available from a handful of breeders around the US.
