Well I just got two new ducks. I am new to the duck community and stupidly I didn't ask what kind of ducks I bought. I have a picture of one. They both look the same exept one is yellow. They both run and waddle. They also have fairly big wings. Please help.

It's hard to tell from the picture but if they walk upright I would guess a runner.

See the 3 ducks on the left they are runners.  The two on the right aren't.    The runners stand upright and the others don't.

I would agree but look at this picture. They have the feather ball thing on their heads. Thank you very much for the help.

The only ducks I know of that have that ball on their heads are the Crested Ducks. I'm not sure if there are different kinds within that variety though.

There are Crested Runners.  Sweet!

I agree with Amiga crested runners and they are very pretty.
