Pros: Sweet, non-aggressive, friendly, funny to watch, animated
Cons: Can be noisy, but this could be typical of most female ducks
As everyone will say about Indian Runners, their upright stance is one of their most desirable and comical trait. They look like little bowling pins with feet! I got 2 little females from Metzer Farms. I had a great experience with them and they shipped healthy and happy. I think ducks have great personalities, very different from chickens. It's nice to have them as a variety. Runners are supposedly good layers, mine are not old enough yet though egg production is why I bought them. Many people say Runners are more skittish than other ducks, but I wouldn't attest to that necessarily, and mine imprinted on me so I'm sure that's part of it. They are very sweet and friendly and love to eat treats from my hand.
