Description
The White Crested duck is a classic breed, having records of its presence as early as 1660 due them being in paintings of Jan Steen. Other Dutch painters such as d'Hondecoeter, Dirk Wyntrack (1670), Peter Casteels III (1723) and Aart Schouman (at the end of the eighteenth century) also show Crested ducks. Interestingly the Crested duck was admitted into the American Registry (1874) before the British Registry (by 1910). Though they can make a good utility bird (eggs and meat) their popularity waned and it wasn't until the 1980s that their popularity rose again. The only crested breeders we have are White but we will occasionally have crested Blue Swedish, Rouen or Buff hatch. Any breed with a crest can be shown in the Crested class. The ideal crest is large, yet centrally located on the head. It is also not to be split into two lobes. According to several books, 25% of fertile eggs produced from Crested parents will die prematurely and 33% are supposed to hatch without crests. We do not seem to find this. In addition, over 90% of our White Crested ducklings have good sized crests. We do not sell a White Crested duckling unless it has a crest.
