DESCRIPTION

Khaki Campbell ducks were introduced in the late 1800s and originated as a cross between a Fawn and White Indian Runner, known for its laying qualities, with a Rouen. Their khaki color comes from mating of that initial cross with Penciled Runner ducks. They were recognized in the American Standard of Perfection in 1941.

Strong and energetic, Campbell ducks are highly adaptable and can thrive in almost any climate type, even cold. We have ducklings for sale at our hatchery in Reinholds, PA.

Weight

Campbells are a lightweight duck breed averaging 4 to 4.5 pounds for males and 3.5 pounds for females.

Good for

If you're looking for a great general purpose duck breed with excellent egg laying qualities, look no further. Apart from their egg production, they are good for meat production.

Temperament

Khaki Campbell ducks are high-strung, energetic and require a good amount of space as they are active foragers.

Egg Production

A prolific egg layer, Campbells first lay eggs at five to seven months and average as many as 340 eggs per year. By staggering your flock of ducks, you can expect year-round production. With proper management, you can expect to get four to five years of good production. Ducks, like the Campbell, are easy to manage considering they lay their eggs in the morning; so, you'll know precisely when to collect.

Time to Maturity

Campbell duck eggs incubate for roughly 23 to 28 days. Following hatching, the ducklings reach maturity in seven months. They can live for 10 to 15 years if cared for well.
