Runner Ducks Chasing Storms
We have a flock of Indian Runner ducks, they spend the day chasing the shade and foraging for whatever’s in the groundcover in our orchard. Rather relaxed life for except when there is a storm approaching, they turn into the most excited storm chasers I have ever seen. We can tell the direction it is approaching from, because they will be as close as the fencing allows in waiting and watching for it to hit, they are not bothered by the lighting or thunder and the rain falling is the pinnacle of the event. Indian runner ducks are the smartest of our poultry and they do have a bit of personality. If you are wanting a bird to free range, you can’t do any better than these, they don’t scratch up your gardens, and very quiet, and the egg laying is as reliable as any breed of chicken.
