Description FAQs, Sizes and Additional Info

Black Runner Ducks

The Black Runner Duck is the slick, black variant of the Indian Runner Family. The Black Indian Runner duck has an active disposition, almost always scouring the earth for bugs and pests. The Chinese have used Indian Runner ducks in the rice fields as pest control against slugs, snails and other bugs for hundreds of years.

While the Black Runner is energetic, it is not capable of prolonged flight. They have a very strong flock mentality, which can sometimes cause larger groups of Black Runner ducks to act in a frenzied manner if they are startled. This provides for an entertaining yet sensitive and emotional pet.

Like other Runner hens, the Black Runner hen can compete with the most effective egg laying hens, yielding between 100 and 300 eggs per year.

For show purposes, the Black Runner duck should not be too large, but should have strong legs and a smooth running stride. The Black Runner duck may develop white aging feathers like any other black duck. This entertaining and energetic animal is very useful addition to a flock and an exotic and unique pet.

totally satisfied! August 26, 2014
Reviewer: Sage Cole from Robertsdale, AL United States  
I ordered 5 Blue and 5 black Indian runner ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. We even had an extra Blue duckling stowaway addition to the group. I wouldn't hesitate to order from Efowl again. Thanks!

Cute ducklings July 14, 2014
Reviewer: Jennifer Robertson from Springville, CA United States  
This order of 10 black runner ducks was an alternate choice when our original order could not be filled. It did take 3 days for our order to arrive, and one duckling did not survive. But eFowl had included an extra duckling so we did have 10 live babies. The ducklings were a little stressed after their trip, but perked up quickly. We did get one mystery duck that was not a runner. eFowl identified him from the photo I sent and gave us credit for the mistake. Customer service was great throughout the process. We are happy with our order and will order again.

Love my duckies May 28, 2014
Reviewer: Alexander Elofson from Seattle, WA United States  
"Coal" our black duck is a cutie, she seems to be the quietest, an introvert of sorts, but loves her sisters and seems to always be in the front of the line.
