The Indian Runner Duck is a favorite among poultry lovers. Although their name suggests otherwise, they are native to Malaysia. They are a light weight duck with a upright pose and are bred in many colors, including, white, black, grey, penciled, tan and blue. They are quiet and known for their very good egg laying production (up to roughly 365 per year, or one per day), but don't take care of their eggs. These ducks stand upright like humans and stand up to 14" tall. They are also bred throughout farms for natural pest control, being released by the thousands. Their waste makes good fertilizer. They are often kept as pets.
