What Is a Snowy Call Duck?
Snowy Call Ducks is a color pattern of Call Duck that is in the Harlequin group. Snowy Calls are uncommon in the poultry world. The Snowy Pattern arose in the Midwest in the mid-late 20th century, and it has been admired by many, but quality stock is hard to obtain.
What Do They Look Like?
The most simple breeds are very simple to care for. Unlike other poultry, the difference between the sexes can be tremendously difficult to decipher. The types can be so unusually shaped and colored, you’d be amazed (or even weirded out in some cases honestly).

Different Pigeons require different care. The breeds that have the "typical" body type (Frillbacks, Homers, etc) can be put into a loft or hutch, and can be free flyers if you would like, with minimal care. Pigeons with complex forms (Pouter, Croppers, Modenas, etc.) need more quality care. They are more grounded, so cleaning the hutch more often is necessary. If you decide you would like to raise pigeons, ask the breeder how they house them, and what they feed them. Pigeon feed can be as complicated as mixing your own, while some feed them simple chicken food and grains.
In my personal opinion. Pigeons are one of the easiest, and simple to care for birds you could get. Though, they aren't the most productive creatures, in the sense of egg production and such, but for the purpose of being yard ornaments, and their elegant nature, they can be worth the purchase.
