    We dont really care what breeds they are, we are just interested in what they may look like when older and for research into breeds. We have 30 chickens and just added these ducks to our flock.. We were instantly in love. My daughter wants to go back and get more. Lol. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    #1 has two small puffs of hair on his head, do you think that means he will be crested? Or just a bad hair day?

    I don't think that's a crested duckling. Crested ducklings have a big obvious poof. Maybe this one is a cross breed with just a bit of crested in the blood line but I'm not sure those little poofs will last into adulthood. could be interesting to see.
