2022 Crested Calls

Working with this gene can be fun and challenging. 
They can be really tricky to hatch. 


I started with just one crested drake and am expanding my crested flock every year.  In just a few short years I now have gray, appleyard, snowy and spot.
I am pushing forward next year to create even more new colors.

 

All birds are considered available until payment is received.   I will delete videos as birds are spoken for.
There is a $10 box fee for shipping in addition to the postage which is calculated by your zip code.  It's running around $60+ unless you live practically next door.  Birds will be held until it's safe to ship.

In order to create larger crests, many people breed crested to crested.
You just need 1 bird with the gene to expand and create new colors and larger crests.
Don't let the crest size fool you.  Just finding a bird with the known crested gene is difficult.  We just don't hatch that many. You can work on size just as I did with offspring.
This is the first year that I am offering crested birds.
I have several hens from crested breeding without crests available if you want a pair. They are $40 ea
