    Hiya everyone! I'm a little confused here, I was told my duck was a khaki campbell when we first got him at about a day or two old, but it doesnt seem to be right. His colors dont match that breed and I cant find any other breed online that looks like him.. He does stand pretty tall but not as tall as a buff runner and he doesnt sit as low/flat as a mallard either. Hes like right in between. If anyone has any answers or ideas with what he might be id greatly appreciate it. I posted pics in the post.

    That looks like am Indian runner and a Blue swedish mix. I have both breeds and that really looks like a mix of the two.

    You have a beautiful blue Indian runner. The intensely upright stance is only seen in exhibition birds.

    You will love the runner breed. My main girl I call bubbles. I call her that because she just floats from one place to the next without a care in the world. She introduced me to the Runner breed. They do this without fear and they are also very sociable. Enjoy her.. I think she's a her, I don't see a curl at the end of her tail. :)

    I love my runners also, excellent little de-buggers. :lol:
    @Zoehenning, how old is your bird, that would help me determine gender, though I’m leaning towards female.

    I've had a lot of hatchery runners and they've all had the upright runner stance.
