They stand erect like penguins and, rather than waddling, they run. The females usually lay about 150 to 200 hen-size eggs a year. The eggs can be white or green, and runners can remain
productive for five years.
These ducks do not fly and rarely form nests, often laying their eggs wherever they happen to be.
They are broody and tend to incubate their own eggs.
Runner ducks tend to be nervous and excitable, but with calm handling, you can tame them. They are great foragers, happiest with plenty of space to root about for slugs, snails, insects and anything edible.
Ring for availability as they sell quickly, we may not always have the stock in.
