Sorry crazychook I'm still very new to keeping ducks and I only know about those I have which are Indian runner ducks I'm sure someone on here can help, I'm confused though why can you not breed crest with crest? Surely in the wild they do? Or am I being dumb???? Please don't shout :-)
Hey @aimtomisbehave hows your duckings coming along???
Wonderfully, thanks! They're getting splashy time this week, and so far it's a hit (even though Ezri can't seem to get the waterproofing figured out). Zoe turned out to be the strongest swimmer, which is AWESOME considering how unsteady she was on her legs when we first got her. I keep a playlist of daily videos here if anyone wants to see their progress
As for crested ducks, I think people try to avoid crest + crest breeding because of the risk of the crest area getting too big and putting the offspring at significant health risk (my understanding is that the crest is caused by a lack of skull in that spot?).
