What do you call them? About white ducks from crested parents.

    I bought hatching eggs awhile back. The only breeds they have are White Crested Ducks, Runners, and Mallards. I have two white ducks from the eggs. No crest or anything. They don't stand up like runner. I have runners and mallards from the batch, but some dogs got them. These 2 are the only I have left. So I am assuming these came from Crested Parents. But what do I call them? Uncrested Crested Ducks?

    Could you upload photographs? The white ducks I can think of off the bat are runners, pekins, calls, mallards and muscovies.

    The don't stand up like a runner. I have a white mallard. And they don't have the red part like a Muscovy. And they are not as big as a Pekin. I will get pictures of them. Been meaning to get pictures anyway.

    Here are the images as promised. The person I got the eggs from also Welsh Harlequins, but I don't think they are that.

    From here, they look like beautiful Pekins.

    That is what I thought..Thing is they are small! Really small. Just slightly bigger than the Mallards around them. :/

    They may carry the crested gene so I wouldn't breed then or most likely the ducklings won't survive.

    That is what I am worried about. :/
