The Miniature Crested Ducks were created in the 1980s, to replicate a small version of the large Crested duck.
As with the original crested duck, we breed to produce a perfectly formed and sited crest, with its dainty body and beautiful plumage. The crest should be round and prominent, it is not the easiest to breed for!
This is an active bird that likes to look for food and will lay a good amount of eggs for a bantam duck.
Redwood Fur & Feather breed two colours of Miniature Crested ducks, either pure white or appleyard. The Miniature Crested Appleyards are of show quality.
Our Appleyard Miniature crested drake won “Best of Breed” in the British Waterfowl Association, Champion Waterfowl 2020.
Eggs: 100 per year
