    Hey everyone, I've been lurking for a few months and finally decided to register since I got my first pet duck back in October. My name is Tim and my duck's name is Taco. I'm very curious as to what breed of duck he is, as his first owner had no clue.

    Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated! :)

    Thanks,
    Tim

    looks like it could be a hatchery runner, or runner mix perhaps.

    Thanks for the input! I have noticed he has more of an upright stance than most domestic ducks, and he will only stand in a completely straight up posture when tickled or if drying himself after a bath.

    Looks like a runner or runner mix.
