Call ducks are bantam ducks raised primarily for decoration or as pets; however they were originally used as decoy ducks in Europe when live decoys were used for hunting. Calls are energetic and active; they are small weighing only about 1.5 pounds and have plump bowl-shaped bodies; wide, rounded heads; tiny, broad bills and short legs, as well as being vocal with a high pitched call. It became known as a Coy or Decoy duck in the Netherlands where its high-pitched distinctive call was used to lure wild ducks into funnel traps and later they were tethered to draw other species within range of the hunter’s guns. Calls lay 25-75 eggs a year and in North America win more duck championships than any other breed.
