    We are looking for a blue bibbed indian runner chick. We might be able to take an adult that is socialized.[​IMG]
    But only if we cant find any chicks.

    The blue indian runner with the white bib is the type we want.

    Blue runners are supposed to be solid. If someone mates either a white or a fawn & white with a blue you may get blue/white. I had runners before and had a blue female and a fawn/white male (among others) and had 2 out of 11 ducklings hatch that were blue with white bibs.

    Hi,

    I'm not on here much, but I have a few Silver Runners I got from Holderreads last June. They had them, but they were not on the list. I went for the Top Quality. I have a Grey duck, and was told the pairing of her with my Silver Drake could potentially produce Blue Bibs. That's how I found this thread, since I was looking for images. Are you in Sonoma, CA? I'm near Ventura, CA. I was thinking of hatching some from that pairing, and see what we get. I just really don't have the space to launch into a breeding program. I have a nice ratio 5-1, and don't want to end up with a bunch of drakes no one wants. You are welcome to PM me if you like. I would be willing to get you some eggs, if you wanted to try that. Either way, I hope you find what you're looking for.
