How long do Indian Runners usually live?
A LONG time... I have several that are 10-12 years old.
Wow! Thanks, that's really good to know!
Wow, and are they still laying at that age?
They still lay sporadically until they are very old. You will see the peak production between about 2-6 years old. After that, they steadily decline over several years. Yes though, some of mine that are very old do still lay.
I hear that 6-10 years is normal for a female (they can pass away from egg laying problems) but some ducks can live 20+ I think the oldest ducks was 22 or 23. The vast majority of ducks do not die of old age, but usually are taken out by predators or health problems.
