    We have a variety of ducks that we have been raising for an egg flock. Some were purchased as khaki X silver appleyard and some were purchased as hatching eggs from a mixed flock of several runner types, khakis and welsh harlequins. We have a few very distinctive looking drakes-are these guys a particular breed or a mix......??? I wonder if they are a runner variety. Though they don't seem as tall as runners I see on you tube-they are very tall compared to the rest. Here is one-they are both identical:

    I would take a wild guess that he's a runner khaki cross.

    [​IMG]Khaki cross eh? The duck in the middle here is the female that goes with the two males like the one above. Except for bill colour, the 3 looked the same until the 2nd moult & mature feathering. If any parents of them are runner, they would be commercial quality for eggs, not for showing. I have more pics of them as well.
