    Bandit is the lightest in the flock. He either leads or herds his hens back into the temp fence area or into the coop-run when it is time to be put up. When treats are hand fed, he waits to make sure the hens get theirs first . He is the only one in the flock that likes to be petted on his head.

    I just love those pics:love my Runners are the best I am truly addicted started out with 5 in 2016 added 8 this year. They are full of life they come out of their house every morning like horses at a horse race. And are so comical they make me smile or laugh. And the babies this year getting to brood them instead of a mama duck has been an awesome experience.

    Love my 2 runners and I’m loving all these pics. Couldn’t find this guy, then he popped out of the irises! Bill is my most human social duck, but hates being handled the most. CADD4876-F069-48BA-A734-94EA3A8B1BEA.png
