There is a female Indian runner duck at a park very close by my house and she is very sweet but tiny and skinny! She sometimes hangs out with two pekin drakes that are there and sometimes mallards but they all pick on her She eats out of my hands and she lets us know she is a girl with her loud quacks! I know she is a runner because she stands straight upright (more than my runner) and runs rather than waddles. A friend of my mom's runs a duck rescue and we are trying to work with her to get the runner... she is chewed up from breeding season. I can post a pic of her (not very good it's a cell pic and doesn't show her grey feathers very well) She is off-white and has a black beak, so she isn't a white runner. I did some research and found out she is a lavender runner. Does anyone else have lavenders? Please post some pics if you do!
Here's a link a lavender runner that looks a lot like her: http://www.freewebs.com/holyfieldwaterfowl/lav%20runners.jpg
