    I went to a country store and they had a dirty little pen around back with about 8 ducklings in it. They were in a small area with no water, and bloody from pecking eachother. I felt like I had to take this little one or he wouldn't have a chance. I paid $5 dollars for him but would've paid $10 to get him out of that neglect and into my clean baby pool! I could tell the rest of the ducks were scovies but this guy was much smaller and obviously a different breed. But the question is what breed? [​IMG]

    I don't know my duck breeds really well yet but the stance says "runner" to me.

    I would say runner, too. And, it looks like he's got a little bit of a crest.

    He took a bath in our big jetted tub when we got home! [​IMG] but I think he's still a little dirty. He does have some feathers sticking up on the top of his head....that's a crest? Or will be? [​IMG]

    I agree with everyone else he does look like a runner, but I would report the seller because that's animal abuse.

    Quote:You're right, I should! They had a goat tied up to a post, peacocks in a small cage, chickens which looked awful, and i think rabbits but I didn't even ask to see the rabbits. I couldn't imagine what condition they were in! I'll call Animal Control on Monday.
