    Sorry for the not so good pics!! They would just not sit still, and I didn't have the best camera lol (phone)
    These guys hatched three days ago (pics from then onwards) and are lil runners, my first ever! 15 all up, 11 yellows and 4 brown/yellows and I've kept one (Mocha, as you would of guessed - so excited to have a duck that will not be just white!!) a family friend has taken all other 14 at her beautiful green farm to eat all the snails, they'll be loved there. Sorry if I bore you guys with all the pics!! (slightly excited) [​IMG]
    Never had runners before so any information would be appreciated! [​IMG]
    Also a little unsure to what they will turn out like when older - received the eggs from a lady in town who had lots of runner ducks and said 'brown and white'

    They are just too adorable...how could you only keep just one. It must have been hard to choose which with so many little cuties.

    I have other ducks, was just only allowed to keep one runner - and too bad you don't live closer!! I would of loved giving some to BYCers! I'm still wondering how my friend is planning to manage with 14 ducks and kids. Although she does have a huge property.
    And thanks! [​IMG]

    Oh goodness! Be ready for your new addiction! I love my runners! they are so happy and friendly, they are always doing something silly! Just the other day my feamale runner Frances (fawn/blue) came trotting up to me with a leaf around her kneck like a necklace. Im not so sure how she managed that but boy was she proud of her self! Mocha looks like a beautiful little baby! Congrats! [​IMG]
