    I got these two khaki's today and the one we picked out has a fluffy head. It was the only one out of 50 with it. Is he a crested khaki?

    Awww, what a cutie. It looks like he might even have a pretty nice crest. Good luck!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] I was not planning on a crested but am even happier now. I had to bring him home with that fluffy head [​IMG] Is there anyway to tell if it is a Male or Female?

    Quote:The best of breeders can tell by their quack. Females have a raspy quack. Other than that... you must wait until you see a sex feather or not. (the curly tail feather like a fish hook... those are boys)

    ETA - Oh yeah.. and on Campbells (just like Mallards) the boys will have a darker head. [​IMG]
