    • The Call duck is the smallest breed of domestic duck, weighing only 1-1/2lbs. They were literally developed as calling ducks, to call down the wild mallard to the great traps or decoys of the Fenlands of the UK and the marshes of Holland. They were first known as the decoy duck, the name coming from the Dutch word ‘de kooi’ meaning ‘the trap or cage’.
      Call ducks are not great layers and the females are most likely to lay in clutches of 8-12 eggs and if left to sit and hatch them out the duck will look after the resulting ducklings with great care and attention.

    All our ducks are bred here at Moon Ridge. We find ducks to be delightful, trusting and loyal. They are easy to keep and depending on the breed are prolific egg layers. Ducks tend to be very hardy and suffer from far fewer diseases than other types of poultry. They are easy to keep with simple housing and protection from the fox they will give you much pleasure and enjoyment. Domestic ducks are as happy on land as they are on the water, a simple receptacle of water so they can wash and preen is all that is required ( child’s plastic sandpit is ideal)

    Ducks are excellent foragers and will hoover up all your slugs and snails .
