    Hi,

    I have several CL's that have hatched. I only see crests developing in a few of them at 2 weeks of age. Should the rest develop crests, or is it probably a no-go crests for the rest?

    Also, I presume that if I want crested chicks from this bunch, I should only save the crested ones for breeding stock?Thanks!

    I would wait before you get rid of any of them to see if they develop them. As for your breeding I would agree to only use the ones with crests
