    This is Anastasia. Went to buy our first Chick about 8 weeks ago and got this girl on impulse! Our lives will never be the same, we are in love with ducks. So, 8 weeks and a cram session in duck knowledge later..... I am wondering what breed you think we might be. We were told she and her sister were Pekins, clearly not. We think she is a crested tan and white runner duck. What do you think?

    Agreed!! She is absolutely beautiful! I love crested ducks and hope to get a few some day! Looks like you have some other ducklings in the background of the pic. Enjoy your adventure with DUCKS!!

    Before you purchase a crested duckling, be sure you research the genetic problems associated with them so you can make an informed decision.

    I could not agree more. I ended up with a crested mallard who developed wry neck. It has been such an emotional roller coaster; the duckling is doing better, the duckling is doing worse. Please take your time to research before getting a crested.
