I bought 3 rouen ducks a couple of years ago from a hatchery, one drake & two hens. I've been hatching the eggs & getting beautiful little rouens for some time. I just hatched a clutch & one of the babies has an afro, almost like its tufted. How can this happen when I have no tufted ducks & my rouens are supposed to be pure. I've heard that all mule or crossbreed ducks are only good to eat because they are infertile, is this true?
Thanks,
Monty
