OK. I had hatched 8 eggs this summer, and it looks like 6 are black runner drakes. Unfortunately I will have to re-home 4 to 5 because I now only have 5 female runners and limited on the size of flock due to convenance. The father drake was a calm cucumber with lots of personality, which is why when he was taken by a hawk I decided to hatch out his offspring. If you live in the DFW(North Texas) area or are otherwise interested in adding a black runner drake to your flock, please let me know. Thanks.
