History
OLD








The Indian Runner Duck breed is believed to have originated in South East Asia, probably the islands of Indonesia, an area once known as the Dutch East Indies, hence the name Indian Runner. Texts refer to a ship's captain who took fawn and fawn and white-coloured ducks from Malaya back to his home in Dumfries, Scotland, where the ducks were distributed across the border into Cumberland. It is understood that fawns were first exhibited in 1876, while fawn and whites were shown in 1896. The Indian Runner Duck Club standard for fawn and whites was accepted in 1913
