    I received my shipment of Fawn & White Runner day old ducklings from Holderread's today! [​IMG]
    I was suppose to get some penciled Runners too but they were out.
    What funny little things! They are SOOO cute! [​IMG]
    Do they ever sleep?
    The minute I put them in their brooder they've well, been running.
    Like little wind up toys looking for food.
    I gave them their food and water which they've been scarfing up for quite awhile now.
    They don't seem as frightened of humans as my Muscovies.
    Are they easy to tame?
    I've been wanting some Runners for a long time so I'm glad I finally got some.
    They're already making me laugh. [​IMG]
    Will post more pics in the future.

    Glad you got some! My fawn & whites from Holderreads are a little over a week old today. I really noticed a difference in their tempermants compared to ducks I got from a hatchery last year. They were so nice the second I opened the box. I try to be around them and work with them a lot. They still come running to me when I have treats and when I just sit in their pen, they jump up on my lap. You'll be very happy with these Holderreads ducklings....can't wait for more pics!

    so happy for you friend o mine!
    love it when they get in the water bowl right away. Of course, they don't know that the books say that's bad for them!
