    Charming 🙂 And I love that beautiful hair. (Not the duck’s, the long blonde curls.)

    We saw a puffy headed duck too. Do you know anything about it? We had several theories about that puff. My daughter thought it looked like a queen duck with a feather crown.

    That’s a crested duck! The crest is a mutation that, in its homozygous form, causes a lethal mutation of the skull – but heterozygously just makes a crown of puffy feathers 🙂
