Well Today I took home the 2 borrowed ducks. I picked them up a month ago from a friend and have been incubating their eggs in the hope of getting better colours. On that day a month ago- I also bought 3 other ducks. As " payment for borrowing the girls- I gave my friend two extra drakes to increase the number of bloodlines she has in her flock. Well...I did it again - but at least not as many this time..and for a VERY good reason. I brought home one drake.. although I already have enough for myself and a few to spare. BUT HE IS CRESTED I cant beileve I actually have a crested Runner finally. They are very rare out here in Australia- and I have never even seen one alive - only heard then talked about and seen photos. He is out with my young ones who are mostly a bit older.. Going out now to take some photos...But I had to log on hear and get this announcement out there... I am so happy with my new boy. he was a surprise hatching at my friends place - as none of heres have crests...But I have discovered where he has come from,And am so happy. I had so wanted to buy ducks from the breeder about a year ago- but couldnt get to the sale...and now I do have a boy from his stock.
