    Hi there I'm new to the site and id love to become a member of this little runner duck group. I have 3 runner ducks who I absolutely love. There names are Tom, Barbara II and Margo. (Barbara 1 had a run in with Mr fox :-( ). I am also mother to 4 chickens, a Meyers parrot, a patterdale terrier, and a 2 year old boy, lol.

    We're down in Somerset. We hatched out the runners in April I think it was. They are obnoxious teenagers at the moment. Think they hate me ha ha! How old are your runners? You have quite a collection of animals! I also have 3 cats and 3 adult grumpy ducks of different breeds and then the 5 runners.

    Ok, progress update, my threep runners are now much more comfortable around us. I haven't tried to feed Thm by hand yet but they are quite happy swimming when we are only about 5ft away and will eat the treats I give them about 3 or 4 feet away. Massive progress. Also, as soon as the light goes, instead of me having to heard them, they just waddle of to bed down in their house!

    Hey Thom, I haven't forgotten you! Just my computer with the pics has gone in to be fixed. That's great news. Sounds like you're doing the right things :)
