White Crested Ducks

The White Crested Duck is a white, medium weight duck with a feathered crest on the top of the head. The Crested Duck first appeared for show in Great Britain, though the true origin of the duck is uncertain. A crest can occur in all domestic breeds of ducks that originated from the Wild Mallard due to a gene mutation. The only two crested breeds of ducks that are recognized by the APA are the White Crested Duck and the Black Crested.

White Crested Ducks are bred primarily for exhibition and egg production. These White Crested Ducks are pure white, and the will closely resemble the Pekin Duck without the crest. The White Crested Ducklings will also resemble the Pekin Ducklings in that they will have soft yellow fur, and these will already have a small tuft of fuzzy hair growing on the back of their head.

Crested Ducks are difficult to breed due to genetic specifications and are not necessarily recommended for beginner breeders, but it's aesthetic appeal and quick growth make the White Crested Duck an excellent breed for exhibition, meat, or egg production. White Crested Ducks make excellent pets as well because their demeanor and physical qualities are similar to the Pekin, yet they have a unique characteristic to set them apart from other domestic ducks.

Theses are interesting ducks May 18, 2016
Reviewer: Wade from Sandy Hook, CT United States  
They are obviously cute, though they seem more messy than Pekin or Khaki, they also seem slower growing, but it was nice to get all hens, and it's nice just to see them run around.

Sweet ducklings August 10, 2015
Reviewer: Diane Vitoria from Brandon, FL United States  
We were first time duck owners and we are thoroughly enjoying our ducklings. We ordered 10 and 11 arrived on time in healthy condition. Three out of 11 were white crested. They are growing fast and are a joy to watch and play with.
