    Its possible. The tuft doesn't always get passed to the next generation "usually does but not always". And can it skip generations. I had a trio of Tufted Romans years ago and one of the females wasn't tufted. She was out of good tufted parents. And most of her gosling would have tufts, I'd even say the majority did.

    Thank you for the response! I just wanted to make sure nothing was up, since these were definitely crossbred.
