Not sure but there are some breeds of ducks like Harlequins that only lay to breed and lay and sit a clutch but thats it..... Maybe call ducks are the same??

copied from another web page....

Calls are very small and, in general do not lay a large number of eggs. Some females may not lay at all. Typical numbers of eggs are between 20 and 60 per year. This is quite unlike the Light Ducks which in the case of the Campbell can lay over 300 eggs per year. Partly for this reason, and partly because Call eggs are more difficult to hatch than Light Ducks and Indian Runners, good specimens of these birds are usually in short supply.
