Hi Im new to chickens and don't know a thing about ducks. Last week vacationing I saw 5 Indian Runners on Ocracoke Island. Took me forever to figure out what they were. This island is over 20 miles from the mainland and the ducks seem to be living wild in a swamp. They come out to get treats but were very shy. No babies. They were white with tan spots. No one there knew where they came from or what they were. I would post pic but having problems downloading to my computer. Just thought if anyone was going to be in the area, they were really neat to watch. Since they don't fly, I would guess they were brought there by someone. No idea if they could swim that far.

It sounds like someone dumped them. Sad because they are much more vulnerable to predators than wild ducks. I know there are some here who have had success rescuing abandoned domestic ducks - don't know if others would recommend someone try to do that or not.
