    That's what I read too, it used to be thought genetic but then diet... I could agree with that, but...

    What most breeders breed for doesn't happen in the wild either... especially Calls... so what if it's a genetic defect we caused in our strive for "Perfection"?

    Yeah that's very true...I can only say...my duck looked a lot worse...but it seemed to grow out of it...now you can only tell if your looking for it....mostly her wings stick out a bit.

    It worked with the ancona breed I had! but those dang silky ducks were a pain in the azz... I let them go and then I ended up wrappin anyways, thats why I threw the two pics there to show her I tried letting it go with just feed. IDK if its the littles or what!

    Thanks, I'm reading more... eyes are crossing now, lol... I just found it odd that none of our others got it, but Io did... Oh, btw, I was not gonna try to quote you, but Friday is like Candyman to SC... he says her name 3x's and she always pops up, lol... *I think it started with her sniper posts though, lol*
