    I now have 3 runners.....not sure of the sexes yet....but two stand so tall while the other one stands more like any other duck...... in your opinion , are these two good runners to breed, I do think I have one female and one male [​IMG]

    In this pic you can see the difference in stances of the 2 against the one........

    How old are they? I can't see in the picture if the one behind has a drake curl or not. The one in front doesn't.

    Hi Katy........I will have to go look,they are only 3 months old now...so I think it is too early to tell.....one quacks and one doesn't though.

    I don't think the one is a runner....maybe a mix.

    Quote:Yes , all of the fawn and white are the same breed. Well come to think of it.the one may be a mix since she/he stands so different.

    The voice is a good way to tell the ducks from the drakes before they get their curl.

    Quote:I am so glad they are sounding different, I would like to breed them if they are male/female.......goodie goodie, I will wait to find out for sure....one thing that drives me nuts is my Roeun, I won't know for a while with that one.......or my deformed mallard either....
