    runner? I am not an expert, just have seen some pics of the runner ducks, look like yours. I hope someone who knows more about ducks will tell you.

    It looks like those are runners- Def, Runners almost are stick straight up, and their fast! (Or so I have been said)

    I don't think you have one male, the three with the darkish brownish heads are males, also a distinct color to look for is their yellowish greenish bill. The females should have more of a dark brownish bill. in the second photo- It looks like the only female is the one on the very left, accompanied by 4 males all behind her, its hard to tell in the pics But I am certain that at least 3 of them are males, also..

    Females have a QUACK! And males have a raspy kinda quack..

    Thats all I can help you with..

    Do they all stand up tall like the back one is the last pic? If so they are all runners.

    Based soley on the last picture I am saying one Fawn Runner (in the back) and four Khaki Campbells (3 drakes and one female). But always hard to tell in a photo.

    So far, only one stands up nearly straight.

    I'll shoot some video and post it up with some additional photos.

    Thanks all for your help.

    Then I'm with jtn42248. Looks like just one runner and the rest are KC. I hope you have some more females as well since those aren't good odds.
