    Curious if these are Indian runners? I just got them from tractor supply.

    Here's one more picture. They have the upright stance.

    My runners were marked like the one on the left in the second pic, but they were always pretty upright. By 3 weeks old they had the classic "runner shape". I know that isn't much help, but mine also came from TSC. They were marked as Pekins and the employees said that the box they were shipped in was labeled Khaki Campbells. I will try to get a picture in a while, it has been raining on and off all day and they are so muddy.

    Yes! They weren't labeled at all and then we were told they were khaki Campbell's so I'm not sure what they are. Now I'm thinking it's possible they're two different breeds.

    Eeeek!!! They are so adorable! I'm gonna go out on a limb and call Bongo a runner lol. Here is a pic of my babies when they were smaller.

    Adorable!!! I'm hoping he/she is a runner! Now that I've figured it out I've gotten excited about having some! They seem like fun ducks. I wish they both were! I might just have to get more if I can find any!

    Bongo appears to have that slender runner shape. If the other also has that shape when standing tall, good chance that one is also a runner.

    It ends up the other is a buff orpington! I'll have 2 beautiful ducks! The buff is growing much faster than my runner.
