These ducks were developed in Scotland around 1900 from stock that came from the East Indies. These uniquely appearing ducks have long, slender bodies and a vertical posture thus leading to their nicknames of “Penguin Ducks” or “Bottle Necks.” Runners do not waddle like other ducks but move with a quick step. They are smaller ducks that are good foragers, lay white eggs, and are a very interesting addition to any farmstead.

When I was in 4-H, I had a Black Runner and I won first place for best in show. It was a beautiful bird and in the sun it's feathers turned purple, green, and blue.
We received our four mix Indian Runner duckling girls just after Easter 2011. They looked healthy upon arrival, grew quickly with healthy appetites. They are laying Med to Lg eggs . We get 3 grn eggs (blk, brwn, blue ducks) and 1 wht egg (fawn/white duck). So far our choc duck is semi-broody. She sits on the eggs until we let them out. We have boiled, fried, scrambled and baked with the eggs. At first the eggs were "gamey" due to the bugs they catch to eat. Now Nov 2011 they are strictly eating their ration and table greens. The eggs taste richer than a chicken egg. I no longer have to see a full chick in my egg pan upon cracking my morning breakfast egg. Thank you, girls for wonderful eggs. Thank you McMurray for our very loved flock of Runner ducks. I will definitely buy here again.
We bought runners last year. The black male is so beautiful- almost iridescent. The fawn and white female is a good layer and a good mom. She is on her second nest now.
Our runner ducks are very friendly and docile. They are also very curious and fun to watch. We will definitely add more runner ducks to our home!
We just love our Runner ducks! They are so funny and very easy for my children to handle. They are very docile too. I will definitely order from here again :) Thank you for such healthy birds!!
The runner ducks I got from McMurray Hatchery are very healthy and lively. They are a great addition to my farmette. I will definitely order from here again!!!!
We love these runners! Happy go lucky personality. You cant get them away from the pond even at -15 degrees. They lay very well also.
Love my runner ducks!!! Extremely healthy. Easy to herd because they like to stay in a tight grouping. They love the cold, too. My runners are out in the snow and ice right, now. They prefer that to being in the barn.
