    I was wondering if there's anyone out there who has both KCs and runners, and if you can tell the eggs apart. I have just one runner in with my KCs. I think that her eggs may be a bit narrower and more pointed. Just curious!

    i think that sounds right
    i hope someone comes along and answers that and tells how to tell the ducklings apart as well as how to sex em (along with black swedish as well)
    (sorry to tke over your thread) would be just great
     
  3. 10ducks you have it right. The one one the left is a runner egg, the two on the right are Khaki Campbells.

    CW Runner ducklings have longer necks and stand up taller. A swedish will have a bib. How old are the ducklings, it would help if you could post pics.

    I don't know, I have runners and they lay eggs ranging from green to creamy white. I don't think there is a single color that runners lay, it depends on the bird.
