Is this a runner duck?

    Picked up a few chicks and some ducks at tractor supply. The chicks are ISA Browns, but the ducks were un sexed and not labeled for breed, and the employees weren't sure what kind of sucks they might be.

    So I've been trying to figure out what breed they are. They tend to stand up like this and run around like that, too. Does this necessarily mean that they are runner ducks?

    If they are the same age, that is totally a runner. Not sure what breed though.

    Thanks, Elizabeth. I don't know why but not knowing what kind of sucks these are was making me anxious.

    I assume all the birds are about a week old, as I bought them last Wednesday. When you say breed, do you mean sex or so you mean color pattern?
