Many Love White Crested Ducks!
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 resemble the Pekin Ducklings with their soft yellow fur. However, 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. Their aesthetic appeal and quick growth make this breed excellent 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.
