    Once upon a time, as part of chicken math, I purchased some ducklings. Yuh huh ducklings are lethally cute. So I just got some random birds. I realize it's a flaw having this crest but otherwise he's such a pretty bird. So I was wondering what kind of duck is he? [​IMG]

    Best guess? Rouen with the crested gene mutation.

    That means he's not in his show plumage like the crested one.
