    is there a reason I can't get chocolate runner eggs? I ended up ordering some ducklings from metzer but just wondering why it wasn't easier to find the chocolate runners [​IMG]

  2. These was someone this year selling choc Runner eggs on Ebay but I havent seen her post for a while. I have a few chocs but they are in with all my other Runners and my drake is blue

    they are hard to find. Most people keep their runners together, that causes mixed hatches, also, I used to have a pair and I kept them with all my other ducks (pekin, swedish etc). I have found that chocolates are the hardest runner color to find in egg form.
