    She is the the one farthest to the right. When I first got her, she stood really straight like a runner, but was being sold as a buff duck. Over time, she has lost her straight body positioning, but she still kind-of stands straight up.

    Here's some more pics of when she was younger:

    She's the one farthest back.

    and:

    She's the one farthest to the right.

    She has caramel color stripes on her face. (I call them her racing stripes [​IMG] ) And on one of her wings she has some dark brown.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    It's always hard for me to tell with mixes. She could be part runner and part buff. The first photo makes her feet look large, and I wondered if she could be a runner x muscovy mule. But the other pics don't show that.

    Anyway, she seems to be part fawn/white runner, and part something a little larger. And she is lovely.

    Definitely not a Buff Duck. I would guess some sort of fawn and white Runner cross. She is very pretty though!

    Well, she is "buff" in color. I guess that makes her a buff duck, but not the breed called Buff Duck.

    She looks like a Runner mix. Or maybe a hatchery quality Runner. They often look like cross breeds. At any rate, she's very pretty.
