One is CLEARLY a Pekin. Big poofy cheeks, grew fast, yellow legs, fluffy. The other two are much smaller and now their white is turning brown and they do not have poofy cheeks. Any ideas? I don't really care, but would like to know what they are.

Yup, definetly fawn and white runners! You'll notice that they stand up very straight.
Here is a pic of my runner boy! (He isn't exactly show quality but he is pure bred!
)

Ok, CAN THEY FLY????? There is no top on the coop because they were supposed to be pekins.

ETA: Ok I found out they cannot fly and do not waddle. I also found out they are on the watch list because there are few than 5000 breeding pairs is the US. Who'd a thunk it?

We never read any further because they were supposed to be pekins. Then the one got to be twice their size and we thought "Maybe they aren't dirty".

I got the information from runnerducks.net Some international association for runner ducks. I tend to seek information with each breed of animal I have. I was watching them today while we made their pond, and it dawned on me they look WAY different.
Duh.
