Indian Runner Ducks are incredibly prolific egg layers. If you want eggs, you will really be glad you chose Indian Runners. However, they rarely set their eggs and even when they do they may not have enough maternal ability to raise their ducklings successfully.
The Indian Runner, like most breeds of domestic duck, is a development of the wild mallard. Its evolution was probably determined more by human influence than natural selection over the hundreds of years they have been in the islands of Indonesia.
Pet Indian Runner Ducks may be obtained for as little as $5 to $6 from breeders who wish to reduce their stocks. Show quality ducks cost around $50.
Indian Runners produce large quantities of eggs. The ducks themselves have enough flesh on them to feed two people and their meat is less fatty than other duck breeds.
* Note: As one comment suggest, these birds are not Indian Runner Ducks, I am on a mission to find out which breed are they, till then please bear with me. Thank you 🙂
