This year for my birthday my husband bought me three call ducks. Yes, I am the girl who prefers ducks over jewelry and other more common gifts from her spouse. I had seen bantam ducks at the local fair 4 years ago and planned right then to acquire some as soon as I was able to. We took a rainy hour drive to pick up a little drake and two hens. Since call ducks originated in the Netherlands I decided to give them dutch names so we are introducing our little Smith ducks to the world as Pim, Pippa and Peeta. I absolutely love them and discovered they are a great fowl to have in the PNW as they love water. My three spend a majority of their time floating in their pool, even in the rain.
