The Call Duck Association is a group set up to promote the health and welfare of this popular breed. Many of these ducks are kept as pets and we aim to provide advice on looking after the birds via our newsletters as well as on the web. We also promote the breeding and exhibition of pure-bred Calls. Juniors are especially welcome, and are encouraged to manage and show Calls. 

We pride ourselves on representing the interests of a wide-ranging membership from novices to long-standing Call duck breeders and judges. The Secretary of the Association is Kate Elkington a devoted breeder of the Magpie Call, who has set herself the task of both improving the Magpie colour and type. Chris Millward is Chairman. He also has bred both ducks and chickens for many years and is experienced in running large exhibitions.
