Description:

If you just want an assortment of Runners, and you don't care which colors you will receive, then you can save some money by ordering the Runner Assortment. Although you can't order specific colors, you can order sexed ducklings and get the sexes you want.

You will receive one baby duckling for each quantity you add to your cart. The Runner Assortment may include any of the following colors:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Chocolate
  • Fawn-and-White.
Runners weigh 3.25-4 lbs and the females lay 100-180 large eggs weighing 65-80 grams per year. Runner females will lay either white or light green eggs, with some laying dark gray or even blackish eggs at the beginning of the season.


Initially bred in Southeast Asia, all Runners have ancestry that dates back to Java over 2000 years ago. They were mistakenly named “Indian” Runners when first imported to England in the 1850s because they arrived on a ship from India; the importing family finally disclosed in 1909, that these runners were in fact from Southeast Asia.

The first Runners imported into England were Fawn, Fawn-and White, and White. They were first exhibited in 1877 at the Dumfries Show in Scotland. Later in 1898, they were admitted into the American Standard Registry, though the Black, Blue, and Chocolate varieties were not recognized until 1977.

Our ducks will fully integrate with all the other breeds that we offer. If you want purebred ducklings hatching from your ducks, make sure you separate your ducks by breed during the mating season. Or you can let your ducks cross and see what different shapes and colors you will get with their ducklings.
