    Thanks for the pics. They are so sweet....I still think my ducks look dorky with their big bodies and teeny wings....[​IMG]

    How old are they?

    Quote:She will be blue...but with patches of black, maybe darker grey and maybe brown....I dont realy know. When she was littler you could only see 3 little black spots but now she is growing like a weed there are more spots than I could see when she was little. They are only 3 1/2 weeks old just now.

    Quote:Java is your brown runner still smaller than the others? Mine are, not by much tho, but they are more reserved, more skittish and more slender than the others, plus my other blue one is small aswell. Sly, Bam Bam and Squidgie and loonies, always 1st, pushing each other out the way, always 1st in the water, noisy as god knows what, I call them the loony toon ducks then the sane crew Sipi, Truffy and no name are all more reserved and stick together...(yes I know, 3 weeks old and still no name but the past few days Ive been calling her Nene so it will likely stick)

    Yeah, my brown runner is a little more than half the size of my blue runner. The blue runner is really lazy. He loves to curl up on our lap. When he's out and running around, if we sit on the floor, he hops right up in our lap and snuggles up. The brown runner is really active and kinda crazy. He will settle down though. He's the one in my avatar. I really need to post some pictures of them!
