    I picked up this duck and picked her out of a huge group of about 50. There were runners, muscovy, khaki Campbell's, and gold 300's in their flock. She guessed it was a cross of a 300 and a khaki. What do you guys think?

    I'm having some people tell me she looks like a silver appleyard as well. The woman bought her stock from hatcheries and didn't say anything of Saxony or silver appleyards though. She's a pretty big girl too, almost Pekin size

    She could also have Golden 300 in her, mixed with KC can't see any Runner there. Def no Muscovy.

    Oh yeah for sure no muscovy, she's almost as big as a Pekin so I don't think any runner. Either way I'm pretty sure she's a high production which is great for us, we have a high demand for eggs between friends and family

    I have some 50/50 runners and other races; that looked the same in build. Including eyestripe. Runner build can really quickly be lossed; crossed with another duck. The rest of the pattern though is really, really, really, rarely seen in runners all over the world. They are technically capable of having it; just few runners actually posses that piece of DNA.

    I think she might have been right.

    Strange, she looks a lot like my Saxony/Welsh Harliquin mix.
