    I have 2 runners and one buff and you have at least 1 runner as far as I can tell, generally if the eyes are super high on the head and the bill is in line with the slope of the head its a runner or runner mix... especially when you consider their long long necks and their tall stance. My buff duck was a lot more compact and full at every stage than my runner, she never had a long neck either. the one on the left does look less true, maybe a mix? but the one on the right is certainly a runner
