    ugh, i delete the one about magpies... found out i can't get any... wondering what people thought about crested ducks? are they as huge as pekins? or are the smaller? can anyone compare them to runners for me?

    What kind of crested ducks? There are a lot of breeds that crested show up in, I believe even runners.

    metzer and storey's guide list them as their own seperate breed, and that other breeds can get crests... so i am talking about the white ducks with crests... the book says they are about 5 pounds, so they are not as big as pekins... i was wondering if anyone had the "white cresteds" like from metzers

    Thanks, I learned something new today (I usually do in this forum [​IMG]). I guess since I wasn't looking specifically into cresteds I didn't know they were an actual breed.
