    Hi everyone, yesterday we went and picked up new additions to the flock, day-old Indian Runner ducklings! We aren’t picky about colours, the woman we bought them from had many different colour ducks so we can’t know for sure what they’ll look like. The ducklings are covered in black down, with black bills and yellow bellies and wing tips. Here are a couple of photos from right when they got home before going into the brooder. Any idea what colours they’ll be when they’re grown up? Thanks xxx

    She said Runner that is what motivated me to look for that color since I had never heard of it in Runners

    Fairly certain they are runners, no mistaking how they stand! Funny that the colour doesn’t seem to exist though

    I’ll get some photos later! We did see their (possible?) parents, they had several drakes and many different hens with many different colours. We’re not that fussed to hen honest, just wanted an idea of what they’ll look like I suppose it will be a surprise!
