Fawn Runner drake Poultrymad©

The Indian Runner breed of duck with its unusual very upright stance has become popular in recent times. Originating in Malaya it has been suggested that a few of these birds were imported unofficially to the UK around the 1870's. The only colours then were white and fawn.

A Fawn Runner was first exhibited in 1876, followed by Fawn/White in 1896

Since then the popularity and development of the breed has resulted in the nine (9) colours which are included in the British Waterfowl Standards and are as follows:-

White, Black, Fawn, Fawn/White, American Fawn/White, Mallard, Trout, Chocolate and Cumberland Blue

Cross-breeding with the Runner, helped to increase egg laying yields to other breeds of duck
