    I have two male pekins that need some girls. Someone has two whited crested ducks. Is it OK to get them? I read on here the Crest was a deformity and they shouldn't breed.

    Yeah, if you plan to hatch some ducklings, I recommend that you avoid any ducks that are crested.

    As long as you don't hatch the eggs you should be fine. I think they'll need more than two girls - keep an eye on them. The girls' lives depend on your protection.
