It's funny to see the runners follow the drake around the yard bobbing their heads up and down. And cute to see them do their little courtship dance in the kiddie pool. Does this mean I will get eggs from my runners soon? I only have 4 runner hens and the rest are seasonal layers. I have two drakes, both fully grown but the rouen drake is the one getting all the attention while the crested drake doesn't seem to care much. I thought they get agressive over the hens? Where exactly would runners be laying their eggs? I know they don't exactly use nest boxes so I'm wondering where to look.. Oh and I don't know how old the runners are..
