    I just ordered three Indian Runners due to arrive February 18th! So excited. I have been researching them since last year. I also have Cayuga and Welsh Harlequin coming the same day both of which I have researched. Often times though books can leave out information that only owners of these ducks can give. Anyone out,there have some pointers for me? Training etc. Thanks!

    I have Runners, they are lovely!

    For raising ducklings, there is a sticky on that - link is in blue letters at the top of the Duck Forum index, if you want to explore it for yourself

    I find them energetic, bright, cheerful. They are adventurous so I need to monitor their environment to keep them out of trouble. Great foragers, great layers.

    There is also a Runner duck thread here somewhere.
