Did you know?

  • Indian Runner ducks have long, cylindrical bodies. Their legs are located at the back of their bodies, allowing this waterfowl to stand upright. The cylindrical shape and leg position enable them to run quickly rather than waddle.
  • Due to their very short wingspan, Indian Runner ducks cannot fly.
  • Indian Runner ducks are not dangerous or aggressive. They are incredibly social, with a timid nature, and can panic when they see any animal other than ducks. However, they are very easy to train and always behave well.
