    I've seen hatchery runners that didn't stand near that erect. so I'd say you got some nice ones coming from a hatchery, I'd love to see your fawn and white better, does she eat good and act healthy. Maybe she is just going to be petite. [​IMG] I always wanted to be petite it only happened in my clothes since I'm short. [​IMG] lol

    I think she is just petite since she is light weight and shorter. She is a treat mooch though and will crawl in your lap for them. My blue runner was always the biggest compared to all the others and doesn't stand as erect as my fawn and white. I'll get a pic today since it's going to be nice and they will be going out. I am also short and I hate buying pants, lol!

    She sounds adorable. look forward to more pics. Suppose to be close to 50 here today [​IMG] In the pants department at least now we can find petites in just about any store when I was young you had to either cut most of the pant leg off and hem or go to stores who specialized in petites. So we have come a fur ways in helping us short ones. [​IMG]

    I think today is going to be better than yesterday! The girls were so happy to go out too. I got a nice pic of her before they ran off trying to fly, lol.

    Lol, runners make me chuckle because they remind me of meerkats or prairie dogs on sentry duty. Very beautiful ducks though!

    Oh my goodness, I did NOT realize that waiting for the ducklings I ordered would be so hard! I have gotten pretty much everything I need for them, so now I'm just counting down the days like a child at Christmas. I want my fluffy duckies now =[

    They should be here on the 11th of February, which is three days after my birthday. It will be like my late birthday present to myself =]

    I got them from Metzer, and I only ordered six. They send heat packs for any orders less than ten, so it should come with a heat pack. I got two Welsh Harlequins, two Cayugas, a Blue Swedish and a Buff. With my pekin and mallard that I already have, it's gonna be one mixed flock!
