Ducks are stupid. It doesn't matter on types of decoys. The only exception is that I like to add some white to the spread. Sprigs or cans. I believe the white shows up from distance. Have heard the same about black decoys, though I've not tried them.
Everybody and their dogs blow a mallard hen call. Birds have heard it all the way down the fly way. Some days it works, somedays it does more bad than good. I believe in mixing the calling part up. Gadwall, teal, sprig, widgeon, Mallard.
Just my 2 cents
