    I had a guy call me and tell me I could have 2 ducks for my lake. He said he got them at Rural King Last year but didn't know what kind they where. He said they where White and Black. Anybody got any guesses what they might be. I am getting them Sunday will post what they are then. But inteal them please give me you ideas.

    They look like runners. Can I breed them to something else or should I try to find more runners. They are both males.They are tane with white around their neck and up the back of their head. I want a duck that will hatch eggs. From what I have read runners are not broodie. So what would you cross them with.

    Well if you plan on selling any of them your gonna want to get more runners. but if your gonna keep offspring i guess it wouldn't matter to have mutts. i have black mallardxRunner and she is really sweet. If you get more your gonna want a 3 hens to: 1 drake ratio that way the girls aren't gettin tore up from all the breeding.
