Does anyone know if crested goslings hatch with the crests showing as crested duckling do, or does the crest develop whilst they are growing

You will probably not get the answer . I asked about crested geese on another forum , no response. Do you have crested geese? So you can tell us once you've hatched them? My personal interest is whether the crest in geese is lethal when homozygous(as it is in ducks).

It is not lethal, see the thread with the painted geese.
