Hmm, I think I'm leaning toward runner now, after comparing that pic with these of my runner and buff as babies.

Roxy (the runner) is on the left in each of those.

Roxy on the right in each of these.

 

 

Hope all these comparative pics help!

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(

Are you able to breed Muscovies and Rouens?

As runners grow you should be able to see a straight line from top of the head to the tip of the bill and they will stand upright 😀
