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.
