Blue Runner Ducks

The Blue Runner duck or Cumberland Blue duck is another colorful addition to the extensive Indian Runner Family. The Blue Runner is an avid forager like other Runners, picking out slugs, snails, bugs and other nuisances found in the garden or around the yard. Innovative gardeners and farmers raise Blue Runner ducklings to act as a natural, eco-friendly, green pesticide for their gardens.

As distinguished egg laying breed, the Blue Runner hen can yield between 100 and 300 eggs per year. The Blue Runner duck will rival the best common hens in annual egg production, and it's versatility as a farm animal lead to vast popularity among duck breeders. Runners yield small amounts of meat tasting similar to wild duck but is not typically known for it's table quality.

As with any other blue duck, blue x blue matings with the Blue Indian Runner duck should produce approximately 1/4 black, 1/2 blue, and 1/4 silver ducklings.

The useful qualities, amusing demeanor, and visually appealing color of the Blue Runner duck a necessary addition to any flock.

Reviewer: Mitchell Moore from Edgerton, KS United States  
I love the ducks!  I was disappointed that the email with tracking number to tell me they had been shipped was sent 6 hours after I picked them up from the post office.
