Sorry I had to share.. We decided to keep one indian runner duck from this year, that absolutely was way below standards, but her personality was so good. We were still moping sometimes that she is so ugly, does not fit Indian runner standards, by body, and her pattern is terrible. Sometimes even doubting if she is full runner, with her short neck, fat belly, not standing straight (her parents were, and all of her siblings.. so that's not the case). But couldn't quite part because she is very tame and very smart. Which are also good qualities. But still...urgh.. ugly ducklings in the future.. (we want to deliver the best ducks on ALL qualities, poor duckies here are apparently on a never-ending miss world contest heehee). Our love returned a bit more. Since a 2 weeks now, she has been laying two eggs a day :O I didn't want to tell before because maybe it was just a one time thing... Which really improves her quality for people that want to have ducks for eggs. I never had a duck like that. Or chicken. So I'm quite excited in breeding with her again. The others lay 5-7 eggs a week. And this one 14 :O Never had a duck like this or chicken; are there disadvantages? Will she quit laying earlier then other ducks? Will she have eventually longer gaps of zero egg-laying? Is it even a possitive thing?
