    Can anyone tell me what to google, so I can learn all I need to about them? I've never seen ducks like this, so tall and their wings, well they are so small. Here's a picture, thank in advance, all I know is I got 2 girls and 2 boys. I asked what the breed was and all I got was they were great foragers.......

    The two with white on them are Indian runners- the other two may possibly be cross breds. Its a little hard to tell from the photo- but are they all tall and skinny- or are the other two a little more rounded - the last photo - the duck on her own- she looks less upright- but in the middle photo she does look more " runnerish" She is a gorgeous colour though.

    Yes, those are runners. Two may be runner-hybrids.

    Green headed guy stands tall, the fawn, she stays low, doesn't stand tall, like the rest, her wings are longer? I guess than the taller ones.

    Little fawn one has hidden again, or I would get a better pic of her.
