The Indian Runner duck is a favorite breed of many people. It is a lightweight duck which matures at about 4 -4 1/2 lbs for the drake and 3 1/2 - 4 lbs for the hen duck. The noted feature is a long and sleek body with an upright carriage. They are a very good egg laying variety with the Fawn and White Runner being the most popular color of duck. They are native to Malaysia and this duck does not waddle, they run. Admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1898, they are very active and constantly search for vegetation and insects to eat. They have a strong flock instinct and startle easily.
Bought two Runners (along with other ducklings and chicks), and all arrived happy and healthy. Ended up being a male and a female, and they are just the cutest pair! Ordered 20 birds total, and still havent lost any! (It's been 6 weeks!) Very happy with my purchase. We will definitely be ordering from Cackle again! (Posted on 6/15/2016)

Thank You note Review by Mario California April 2010
Thanks a lot to all involved in my order. All I want is to thank you for my chicks. Sadly one of the little turkeys arrived dead but the rest are doing fine. Hopefully everything goes fine and I will see you next time. Have a wonderful day. (Posted on 11/18/2015)
