    When we very first started with ducks we had 4 Indian Runner ducks,and 4 Muscovies. When raised "Correctly" they are nice,but honestly I could not help but chase them and play with them.The drakes both split the hens with no fighting (Of course they were still young).But, one of the grey ones died from some sort of leg problem (Thinking Niacin deficiency.)And the brown hen got shot on accident.

    The girls made great egg layers.They lay greenish/blue eggs.Pretty broody but our's never hatched because never would hatch in the nest boxes.The drake was good to us,but did chase me,soon he got killed by a snapping turtle.His mate (She was I think a a fawn white or something),but she is the only one we had live up to about 5 or 6 years (She literally just got killed about 2 or 3 days ago.)She was pushy,she was the lead duck (Besides the drake).She would never ever let our little Ancona duck mate the other girls (No idea why,she mated with just about any drake she ran into).She never lost a fight (Here mate daffy was too very tough and some what aggressive.).H

    Great ducks.This girl kept her spot for along time,sad she died.
