    Is it common for a white runner to have a grey beak? Or do you think shes crossed with another breed? All the online examples seem to show white runners with yellow beaks :hmm

    Are all these ducks from the same parents? Is it possible she is actually "splash" and not "white" ?

    Hmm I’ve never known or seen a white runner with a gray beak. Where did you get them from?

    I believe she could be a Silver Runner.

    I got my silver from a member on here she came as an egg and my Muscovy hatched her out. My black Runner females and my Blue are turning speckled with white now they are going on 3 yrs old. Never heard of the color blue splash in Runners but I really don’t follow coloring or genetics. What ever your Runner is beautiful!
