    I have 5 Runners and a Pekin in a 45 gall tote....looks like they are going to fill that tote in no time.
     
  4. I just went and looked at your back posts from when you got them. Couldnt figure out why 1 of your 18 day old white/yellow ones had a dark bill. My blue runner babies dont look like your blue runner baby...hmmm, go figure

    Yeah, I noticed your blue babies were, well, blue.
    Mine only has a blue bill and feet, though she has some darker stuff on her and she's getting some blue butt feathers too lol
     
  6. Oh well, it will be interesting to see the colours they turn out once the are bigger. Maybe yours will be more of a pale blue, silvery colour and mine will be a steel grey blue. Oh the wonders of mother nature.
