    hey guys. i bought a new duckling to maybe become a companion for my duck i currently have. anyway. i went to this farm and i always wanted a runner. and he said he had no idea what they were and i could get one for 3 dollars. how could i beat that? does this ducky look like a blue runner????

    It will look like a skinny swedish duck since it will have a white chest (the bib)

    That's hard to tell. My runners were more upright but with the water under it's butt could be making him/her stand more duck-like. If you could get a picture of him/her out of the water that definitely would help.
