A crested call should look like a call
duck in every characteristic except that
it should have a well formed, centered,
crest of feathers on the top of its
head. A good crest would be one that
would be the size of a nickel- to -
quarter at the base of the crest. This
particular call could use a better crest;
she has one the size of a dime.
This little gal was a bit of a surprise for
us since she was hatched out of non
crested parents. We have taken a
liking to her and have kept that
particular pen mated up to see if they
will produce more offspring with the
crest present. We have also put her
back to her dad to see if we can
increase the size of crest in her
