crested/pekin ducks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for mature female ducks for my two male pekins because they are trying to mate with my mallard. Some e said they have two crested ducks for sale. Is this a good idea? I read on here that the Crest is a deformity and they shouldn't breed.

I have heard crests are a deformity  where the skull hasn't hardened over completely.   You can get more information by posting on the duck thread.  Just put "Duck thread," in the search box and it will take you there.

Here's a link to the duck breed focus thread on Cresteds...you might find it interesting:

If I remember correctly, you may run into problems when you mate 2 cresteds together.

 

The duck forum folks should be able to answer your questions.

:welcome x3 on posting in the Duck forum, also try posting in your state's thread to find locals who may have some ducks for sale. Good luck to you! http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread
