    Sorry, I don't have pics yet, will tomorrow, but these ducks have the top knot thingy on their heads. Does anyone know what kind of duck they are so I can do some research?

    edited to add: I just googled and came up with "tuft" ducks?

    thanks!!

    ***PICS ON POST #9!!***

    They are also called crested ducks. I think a number of different breeds may have a crest.

    Most ducks can have the crest gene; I have a crested pekin. Do you know what color(s) the ducks are? [​IMG]

    Here are the ducks! I believe we had a case of "duck multiplication". We meant to get 2 but ended up with 4!! I actually could not stand to see the ducks in their living condition so I opted to take all of them. I do have a feeling at least 2 of them are boys. I will get better photos today but wanted to show off my cuties!! The photo is them in their old home before we brought them home. Yay!!
