white crested ducks/pekins

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two male pekins that need some girls. Someone has two whited crested ducks. Is it OK to get them? I read on here the Crest was a deformity and they shouldn't breed.

Yeah, if you plan to hatch some ducklings, I recommend that you avoid any ducks that are crested.

Love my family...8 ducks, 4 cats, 2 dogs, a boyfriend, grown-up son & BYC lamps!

As long as you don't hatch the eggs you should be fine.  I think they'll need more than two girls - keep an eye on them.  The girls' lives depend on your protection.
