    My duck Dumpling has a crest but I'm not sure what breed he actually is . He's a rescue duck so I never knew what he is. Here's a picture: [​IMG]

    It would be great if you guys could help me figure out what kind of duck he is. Thankyou!

    I am not an expert by any means, but I would say a crested black swedish drake[​IMG] Handsome bird you have there, regardless of breed

    It looks like a Black Swedish. However, there are many mixed breed ducks that look exactly like Swedish ducks so it could possibly be a mix. His multi colored poof is adorable. :love

    How old is he?

    Black swedish, production quality based on the bib.
    I LOVE the name you gave him!

    That white patch in the chest is called a bib.
