My new runner ducks!! I just had to share!! I got these babies off a friend I met on this forum. Thanks Becky!! Thing 1 and Thing 2 Perry Peencock Jr. Penny Last but definitely not least. My absolute favorite!! Cindy Lou Who I love these little fellows. They are so awesome. They are the friendliest, most loving ducks!! I do have a question for the forum. Is it normal for runner ducks to shake? My little Cindy Lou legs just shake and shake and then she lays down. She does this a lot. Is this normal. Another question...How to properly introduce them to my other ducks. I put a dog kennel fence at the end of my current flock's run. I sit in it with the runner ducks and let them play and eat close to the flock. After 20-30 mins I let the flock out of their run to spend time with the new babies. The first night the big ducks chased them and pushed them down to the ground. The next night the babies started standing up to the flock and scared them all back in the pen. Since then, things are a little better but as soon as one gets too close to the other the chase begins. Sometimes it is funny to watch. If I spend to much time talking to the babies a Pekin will charge the group. Each time that happens I pick up the Pekin and hold him and I also pick up a baby and hold him. I make them spend up close personal time together in my arms. I hope I am doing the right things. They need to get along with each other by the time my babies have all the feathers. One last question: Can anyone help me with the colors? I am confused. Never had runners before. Are they pencilled or fawn and white. Buff or chocolate???? Tell me what you think? I have to end with the cutest close up! Cindy Lou Who And a picture of the group Thanks again Becky for the awesome runner babies!! And thanks to backyard chickens for such a great forum!!
