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. Our Blue Indian Runner Duck Hatching eggs allow you to hatch your very own of these beautiful birds.

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.
