    Crested white or runner? They'll spend a lot of time outdoors when we're not home but will spend the rest of the time indoors (with diapers) as house pets. I do want eggs too...so which should I choose? It will join my pekin.

    I vote runners! I currently have 5 pet runners and they all are so sweet and comical! Such personality! Some are more cuddly than others, it all depends on how much you work with them.
    If you dont have time for taming and socializing then I would go with the white crested. It sounds like you plan on kepping them inside which suggests your willing to work with her, I think you'll find that a runner will be worth the effort!

    Good Luck

    runners are an excellent choice. ANd they are available in several colors if you were interested in that.
