24 Ducks That Look Like 18th-Century Wig-Wearing Aristocrats

We’ve got used to seeing people posting their cute pets online, which usually are either cats or dogs. But the animal kingdom has so much more to offer than just the most popular variety. We just had the most amazing opportunity to see mossy frogs, but now it’s time to look at some genuinely fascinating farm animals.

Turns out, there’s a duck breed with a peculiar characteristic — an adorable tuft of feathers atop the animal’s head. It’s speculated that this breed (or similar species) has been around for 2000 years. And while it’s been known to farmers for hundreds of years, people on the internet just recently discovered this adorable breed of ducks.

It wouldn’t be the internet, if pictures of this particular duck weren’t quickly turned into a meme. Many compared the crested ducks to George Washington, 18th-century judge, and more. And it definitely looks like those ducks wear a wig of some sort. Now that’s a conspiracy! Scroll down below to check them out and don’t forget to comment and vote for your favorites.
