    12 adds over several sites and 5 calls later I FINALLY GOT DUCKS[​IMG]. You don't know how long it took me to track down some runner ducks.
    Here they are-

    Any name suggestions, I was thinking Gemima (je-my-mu) and puddle duck or puddle.
    Could any one also help me with what colour they are??? (obviously black and white but what is the breed colour).

    I don't think black and white is an official runner color but they are cute. I don't name my birds so I'm no help there. ;)

    My black runners have snow, so we could call them snowy blacks. Nothing official.

    Thanks guys/gals. They are so funny and full of personality, I don't usually name my poultry but just thought these are my first ducks so may as well. Sorry Amiga I don't think I get it.lol.
    Isn't the breed Magpie or something.

    Gee... Sorry i havent been around for a while...I would have helped you in your search. I often get calls from people saying how hard it is to find Runners here- but I have them all year round...and know a few people in different states that do as well.
    Anyway- they are gorgeous- and Im sure you will love having them around.

    Oh Ducky [​IMG]thanks, ahah only joking, I could have really used your help but now at least through my searching I have found 4 duck breeders around my way so when/if I want more ducks I know where to go.
