Pair of Silberwildfarbig
Runners (also known as Streicher Runners). This colour type originated
in Germany and most British breeders have a way to go before achieving
the quality of German
and Dutch birds.
We added some
silver runners to our flock a couple of years ago. As our birds
came originally from crosses between Abacot Ranger and (probably)
White Runners and the breed has a way to go before it achieves the
stability and quality of other Indian Runner colourtypes. Our birds
are robust, good layers and we are getting near, albeit slowly,
to achieving correct markings. See our page on experimental Welsh
Harlequin/Chocolate Silver Runners for comparison.
