    I am not sure I guess if these are runner ducks? Someone in another thread had suggested that they weren't so now I am curious to know for sure what kind of ducks I do have!? I thought they were runners but I could be wrong. PLEase take a look and give your opinions on what kind of ducks these guy's could be. Thanks!

    From the pics they kinda look it. The one with the poof would be crested. Do they stand upright instead of parallel to the ground? (hard to say for sure from pic) Easiest way to tell.

    Not as upright as some I have been looking at here on this site.
    Here are a few more...

    One looks like a crested Swedish to me, perhaps with a little runner mixed in. The all brown one definitely has some runner in it. It could be a pet quality runner.

    I wondered about Jade because he has always been bigger than Cocoa.

    I am ok with a couple of heinz 57 mixed babies!

    They are perfect to me![​IMG]

    If I was to guess I would guess no, or at least mixed. Mine are lighter and stand more upright.

    Cocoa looks like a few of my pet quality runners, the ones that are chunkier. I also have some slender, tall, very upright birds. They all came in the same batch from the same hatchery.

    Jade, I agree with desertdarlene, looks to me like a runner swedish cross.

    Did I mention I think you have beautiful ducks?

    Nothing that hasn't been said already, I'd say either part runner or pet-quality seems likely. Beautiful either way, love those colors!
