    Yes it can easily be bred out it's a ressesive gene odds are you you have a homozygous dominant for no poof none of the babies will have a poof when born from one with a poof .

    Hi friends I have a mixed flock of ducklings with almost every breed I could find, I just love to watch and play with my ducks. I have found however that I want to raise the Cayuga. I love the look and the breed although standoffish if not handled they can be taught to trust and be awesome pets. [​IMG]

    I am not sure if I posted any of my Cayuga yet but I will. I do have a question that I have not been able to find the answer for and since I am a Cayuga newbie how do I tell the Drake from the hen other than its quack?

    a male will have the curled tail feather and have a brillant green sheen to his head while females just have a black had without the sheen

    Those are actually roman tuffed goslings. I do have 2 that are a blk crested drake mixed with a buff hen. I will post pics a little later. Not sure what they will look like at the end.

    Ok my cayuga is quiet with some green as been but no tail curl at all. At least not yet. I will get closer pics of him/her tonight

    Yeah I knew they were goslings
    I have geese
    Hence the profile pick and name

    Sry buff goose guy. I try not to assume either way. What types of ducks and geese do you own? I love my tuffed roman but I saw a hatchery sometimes gets tuffed Toulouse. I would love to add some of Those but im not sure if anyone has raised them before. The buffed roman thread on BYC is dead. Not sure thats a good or a bad sign.?

    I was planning on getting many many diffrent breeds


    But I decided on the rare American buff goose

    Not that Rare in America but can sell for thousands in other countries .


    My geese are show geese though so they are very upper class in breed standards

    ( I almost got an assortment of pilgrim , tufted buff goose , Chinese and tufted buff roman geese )
