It would not surprise me if it's a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

I'm not planning on breeding ducks, though they have other ideas about that. We need to get better at finding the nests before they've been incubated.

If you happen to know anyone that's interested in these crested ducklings let me know. I won't be keeping any myself.

Let me try to dissuade you... :)

Ha, I just re-discovered this thread when searching for angel wing (which I think one duckling has). You turned out to be somewhat the enabler, rather than the dissuader, seatil, when it came to ducklings! :lol: :lol:

Some people can only be persuaded/dissuaded by first hand experience. ;-)

I agree seatil, it's the ducklings. Little minds of their own. We secured our double gates with small plastic mesh at the bottom. Take that, little ducklings.
