    Well I just got two new ducks. I am new to the duck community and stupidly I didn't ask what kind of ducks I bought. I have a picture of one. They both look the same exept one is yellow. They both run and waddle. They also have fairly big wings. Please help. [​IMG]

    It's hard to tell from the picture but if they walk upright I would guess a runner.

    See the 3 ducks on the left they are runners. The two on the right aren't. The runners stand upright and the others don't.

    I would agree but look at this picture. They have the feather ball thing on their heads. Thank you very much for the help.[​IMG]

    The only ducks I know of that have that ball on their heads are the Crested Ducks. I'm not sure if there are different kinds within that variety though.

    I agree with Amiga crested runners and they are very pretty.
