- Fawn and White Runner Ducks
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.
We can not ship ducks to Hawaii.

Ordered 15 Chicks, and 3 fawn and white ducks. Received 17 chicks and my 3 ducks. All of them HEALTHY and beautiful. 6 days old and thriving like crazy. Love them all, will be getting more of everything next season. I also want quail but they are out of them for the rest of the year. Many, Many thanks to all of you for selling and sending such a great product! (Posted on 6/10/2019)
So cute Review by Phyllis
My order of ducks arrived this morning. Ordered 5 female and 1 male fawn and white runners and received one extra. The male was marked, thank you. Also ordered 4 Ancona ducks. All arrived healthy and very active. They have no problem finding the water and feed. I know I will enjoy having them running around the yard when they are old enough. Thank you Cackle Hatchery. I will be ordering again. (Posted on 5/17/2019)

Sweet little babies Review by Brenda
Ordered two of these with my order of goslings, black runners, chicks and turkeys. They were a little sluggish and cold but once we got them warmed up they perked right up. We received them this past Wednesday, they were a little skittish compared to the others but they have quickly warmed up to us and now come to us to be held. Such little sweeties, these two are our bashful littles and that's ok. I absolutely adore them and they love their smashed peas. As always cackle has done well!! (Posted on 6/11/2017)

So happy! Review by Little Herd Homestead
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)
