    I found this cutie at the swap last Sunday. I've always wanted a crested! Any idea what breed it is?

    ..... wow-- a year later....

    That duckling turned out to be a crested black phase blue swedish. She mated with my runner drake last summer and had lots of crested babies! I will probably have some extras later on.

    Hey Carole,
    How about a pic of him as an adult? I'd love to see what he looks like.

    Sorry these aren't the best pictures, but it's what I have right now. I gave her away to a friend, but we are getting her back soon, and then I can post more.
