    Okay, I'll jump in! (Been busy this week - more details to be posted at a later date).

    Seems my chocolate and black runners get more "snow" with each molt. I'd read that this can happen. And yes, I'll need to upload some pics soon, which means I'll need to take some!

    It's interesting to me how the snow comes in differently for some of the ducks. Zwei was the first to start getting white feathers. At almost two years old, her belly is white, her shoulders are white, and she has smatterings of white on her back and tail. Her head has been solid chocolate brown until a few weeks ago and is now beginning to be flecked with tiny white feathers. She looks like she's wearing a pinafore!

    The other chocolates have varying amounts of white on their bellies - it's almost like checkerboards.

    Most of the black runners just have a little snow on their shoulders. But Sieben is now salt and pepper everywhere but her tail.

    They are all perfectly lovely, of course!

    Who else has snow-splashed dark Runners?

    Just ordered 12 top SQ Runners from Holderreads for this next Spring (8 Penciled and 4 Emery Penciled) [​IMG] I can't wait to get them!!! I used to raise/show white Runners but lost my last one a few years ago. I really miss having them around. Anyone else have penciled Runners from Holderreads that they want to share pictures of?

    I have been raising waterfowl for 30 years..but only 2 and a half years with Runners. Looking back now I cant believe it took me so long to start with these wonderful ducks. I have brooders going year round, but after about February march things will be slowing down for me in the front since I will have my full breeding/ show team for the year. Here are a few pic of mine.

    Do your runners swim/bathe in their pool or pond very often? It seems like my girl barley ever gets in. Hmmm.....
