Most of the people online fawn over puppies and kittens, 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 as well as snails that look like they were created by Dracula himself, 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 honestly? We agree! 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.

The Crested is a breed of domestic duck. It was probably brought to Europe from the East Indies by Dutch ships.[1]:413 It has its appearance because it is heterozygous for a genetic mutation causing a deformity of the skull.
