    I just bought 4 females and 1 male (runner ducks) and I'm just wondering if you care for them the same way as any other duck, specifically mallard or Rouen because that's what I've had in the past. Do they eat the same food? Live in the same type of environment? I haven't had female ducks so how do I make a nest for them? Any information would be very helpful! They are also adults... Very skiddish. Is it possible to eventually gain their trust and get them to be even a little less skiddish?

    All ducks are the same. Although runners need a living space height of 3' or more to be comfortable, they're the same as any other kind. However they rarely go broody unlike Rouen or Mallard.
