Class 11 — Coloured Call Ducks

The Call Duck is the smallest breed of domestic duck, weighing less than a kilo. What they lack in stature, they make up for in noise! Live shows can be really noisy and full of atmosphere. We have resisted the temptation to add an audio track to these pages.


The standard colours of Call Ducks are very specific: to succeed in showing you need correct colour genes as well as exceptional ‘type’ or shape. The following Call colours are standardised by the BWA and PCGB:

  • Mallard
  • Blue Mallard
  • Apricot Mallard
  • Appleyard
  • Apricot Appleyard
  • Silver
  • Blue Silver
  • Apricot Silver
  • Mallard Dusky
  • Khaki
  • Blue Dusky
  • Apricot Dusky
  • Black
  • Chocolate
  • Bibbed
  • Magpie
  • Mallard Pied
  • White
  • Yellow Belly
