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.

I got all my ducks alive and very lively all the way to eastern Virginia. They are now 8 days old and all alive and well.

Blue Indian Runner Ducks August 10, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa from Md, MD United States  
Beautiful ducks, sweet. I bought a pair but the one died 3 days later. It was much smaller than the other ducks and was acting odd so I kept extra eye on it. Kept extending his neck out & resting on cage. Very disappointed and sad. Now I'm down the pair.

Good, healthy ducks August 5, 2015
Reviewer: Cheryl Thomas from Port Orchard, WA United States  
Delivery went smoothly, all arrived healthy. Did pay for the gel feed- highly recommend. 'Warmer' was an extra male. Had only wanted one male, so not thrilled. Still, so far they are getting along. Coats are mottled, not bred to breed standard so won't recommend to someone looking to show them. For us, they are good.
