Indian Runner Ducks :: Shared Description

The Indian Runner Duck is a domesticated mallard originally from the Far East. The Runner became popular in Europe and America as an egg-laying variety towards the end of the nineteenth century

Indian Runners are an distinct from other breeds of duck in that they stand erect like penguins and, rather than waddle, they run. They do not fly and only rarely form nests and incubate their own eggs.

The ducks vary in weigh between 1.4 and 2.3 kg. Their height (from crown to tail tip) ranges from 50 cm (20 inches) in small females to about 66 cm (26 inches) in the taller males. The eggs are often greenish-white in colour, but these too vary.
