Description

Duck Family Weathervane.  Known as Indian Runners they are a domestic duck. Like Penquins they stand erect but instead of waddling they run. they are able to lay 300 to 350 eggs a year. they tend to drop their eggs where ever they are. They originated in Indonesia on the islands of Lombok, Java and Bali. Their owners would walk them to market where . they were sold for meat or as egg layers. It is necessary to house the these ducks overnight and to collect the eggs so that other animals are prevented from taking them. They can walk or run but they are unable to fly. https://runnerduck.net

The weathervane is powder coated. Like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
