    Two questions:
    1) Does Liliuokalani look like a blue runner or a black runner? I ordered one runner from the Runner Assortment (Metzers), so I'm not sure! When she first came, I thought she was black, than as she got older, I thought she was blue, and now that she's 3 weeks old and growing in her feathers I don't know! I think she's blue, but I can't find many good pics of blue runner ducklings, so I thought I'd ask. If you want to, you can post pics of your blue or black runner duck(ling)s (any age), too, so I can compare mine with yours and see what she'll look like when she grows up! Thanks.

    2) I need ideas for middle names! I have six ducklings, and I named them all but there's so many cool names out there, and naming them is so much fun, that I decided to give them middle names, too! Their first names are:

    Quackers

    and Liliuokalani.

    Any ideas? Thanks. [​IMG]

    Another question about my runner: she is really really, umm ... I guess you could say either lazy or laid back. She sits around alot. The other three will be running around, drinking and spilling their water, or attacking lettuce that I put in there, but she kind of just does her own thing. She does get up to eat and drink and she's not that inactive, but she is not like the others. Does anyone else have ducks like this, or is something wrong with her? She has always been like this. If she was my only duck, I don't think I would have noticed, but I'm comparing her to the others. Thanks [​IMG]

    OK so I just found out there's nothing wrong with my runner and she is indeed a blue. Anyone have ideas for middle names? [​IMG]
