    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]

    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.
