Runner ducks were originated in SW Asia. They were known for their high egg production and excellent mobility. Flocks of these ducks are raised because they are light weight, they won’t trample vegetation while searching for bugs and slugs. You will not find a better foraging duck than a runner.
Over the course of the past 80 years, breeding programs in England and the United States have primarily focused on coloration, which has resulted in the runner ducks no longer excelling in egg production and instead they are just average layers.
