Puffy Duckling

Hey Lookie there! See what has shown up on the back of the duckling’s head? It’s a crested duckling! You see a crest is actually a defective gene thats recessive. The crested duckling is not affected by this only issue is if they breed with another crested duck I’m told they are born weakly and sickly and usually don’t live long. I’m not quite sure how accurrate that is I’d really like to know since some of my ducks carry this gene.

And look who hatched a day early. The duckling now has a little yellow roomate.
