If they look off repaint especially if they r for later in season. Early season dekes can be duller. Figure feathers on ducks not in full plume til late season.

Really up to you...depends. Kind of a catch 22...

Early morning, late evening hunts..you can get away with the decoys being duller..sticking to more motion on the water..Ducks can't really pick out the colors...same goes for foggy or cruddy weather conditions. But bright sunny days, you'll want decoys that ducks can see at a distance. I try to maintain most, but running different brands with different body styles, colors, etc makes a more realistic spread than running all the same brand/body style IMO. It's tough to find paint kits now anyway because many decoy companies have the colors molded into the plastic instead of being painted on.
