    I have a crested runner & oh man, she is the sweetest duckling but she is not very bright. She came with a group that we ordered and she is the only crested one, (thank the lord) that came in the bunch. I know that crested ducks have all sorts of problems but she is definitely on the low end of smarts. Does anyone else have any "funny" ducks? Or "funny" duck stories?

    My created is also not the sharpest tool in the shed, lol. Actually most of mine aren't that bright when it comes down to it but they sure are cute and I love them.

    Aw, bless...yeah, sadly a lot of crested ducks have mental issues. It's all part and parcel of not having a skull to cover the back portion of their widdle brains!

    As for funny stories, look no further than Tevye, Gentila's duck! You can read all about his shenanigans here, I guarantee you'll be laughing by the end. He's a total ham and a real gentle giant, and I love him to bits! <3
