Indian Runner Ducks are used for the Quack Pack. These are an extraordinary looking duck with quite short legs and a tall, upright body - much like a penguin. They can be up to 14” tall and can weigh around 3 to 5 lbs. As their name suggests, they run rather than waddle.
These ducks are native to the Indian-sub-continent and Malaysia. They were first brought to Europe, via Whitehaven in Cumbria, England, by a sea captain. They were exhibited at the London Zoological Gardens from 1835. By the end of the 19th century the breed’s popularity had spread considerably in the UK. These ducks have remained popular because they are prolific egg-layers sometimes laying up to 300 eggs per year.
The Quack Pack Indian Runner Ducks have instant appeal to an audience. They are very social, comical, daring, have endless amounts of energy, and are eager to please in every Quack Pack performance. The Quack Pack Indian Runner Ducks can be easily handled and are very trainable. They have a strong urge to flock together.
