Hi to all crested breeders,

I have been breeding this variety for 35 years and still learning about them.

Breeding a Crested to normals is quite okay but you must understand about the prepotency of the crested gene in the crested bird. Breeding just any crest to a normal may lead to the dissaperance of the variety in your aviary.

Breeding Crest to crest first is the best.

F/C - F/C gives a chick which I call a DF this is the bird to out cross to the normal and any chick that is crested bring it back to the F/C.

Thank's Kaz, trying to decide if I like them or not. Sort of remind me of one of the three stooges. ( the one with the basin haircut) l.o.l. :D

I didnt like them at all when I first saw them, even though I have crested canaries at home. However they are so cute and funny and comical looking ( mostly all small ) that they tug at the strings of your heart.

I may get some going in the future myself.
