    I am guessing, Campbells? I really have no clue. The people I got them from do not know either, or can't remember...

    The middle two have fawn and white runner markings . . . could they be KH / Runner mixes?

    Or, two fawn and white runners (hatchery quality) and two Khaki Campbells.

    I thought runner mix to because of the coloring, but they do not stand erect like runners and have shorter legs. Thinking the runner Campbell crosses... But Campbell's are the closest looking I have found...

    I agree with Amiga- They definately look to have some runner genetics in them somewhere along the line. Some very sweet looking faces on those quackers!!

    I've seen photo's of a number of nominal runners that are much less upright, much heavier set with shorter legs. Apparently if a breeding program doesn't exclude these kinds of characteristics, the ducks start looking less and less like the ideal runner.
