Khaki Campbell Ducklings: Egg-Laying Superstars

Khaki Campbell Ducks were introduced in the late 1800s, originating from a cross between a Fawn/White Indian Runner (known for its egg-laying qualities) and a Rouen (a good-tempered, plump duck). The khaki color that gives them their name comes from the mating of that initial cross with a Penciled Runner Duck. Choose your preferred run type, the number of ducklings you want, and your preferred ship date, and add these fun and energetic ducklings to your cart now!

Founded in 2010, Fifth Day Farm got started by raising Khaki Campbell ducks and Muscovy Ducks, both of which were originally hatched at the parent JM Hatchery.

The Hardy, Energetic Khaki Campbell Duck

Once your shipping date is selected and your ducklings are on their way to you, you can expect a good-natured and prolific bird to arrive at your doorstep. These birds may cross between two different types of ducks, but they are still recognized as an official breed. In 1941, the Khaki Campbell Duck was recognized in the American Standard of Perfection (a publication describing all recognized domestic poultry varieties and breeds).

The Khaki Campbell duckling is strong and energetic, highly adaptable to a variety of environments, and able to thrive in nearly any type of climate—even in cold temperatures. So, no matter where you are, you can enjoy these fun animals in your backyard or on your farm! For example, we have Khaki Campbell ducklings for sale from our hatchery in Reinholds, PA, which experiences four distinct seasons and has plenty of these ducks that thrive.

How Large Will Khaki Campbell Ducks Get?

Campbells are a lightweight duck breed, with an average weight of 4.25 pounds for drakes (males) and 3.5 pounds for hens (females).

What Are the Khaki Campbell’s Best Qualities?

The Khaki Campbell Duck is a true multi-purpose breed. Its meat is moist and delicious—but its true claim to fame has to be its egg-laying capabilities, with hens providing a minimum of 300 eggs per year. You can also count on them to forage all day, eliminating garden pests and running off small vermin.

These good-natured, easy-to-maintain ducks will not only enhance the landscape of your farm or backyard, but they will also supply your family with the best foods—from breakfast all the way through dinner.

The Temperament of Khaki Campbell Ducks

Khaki Campbells are high-strung and energetic, and they demand adequate open space for prancing, grunting, babbling, and foraging. When those space requirements are met, they are good-natured and approachable—particularly with those who feed them and have raised them from ducklings.

Khaki Campbell Egg Production

A champion egg layer, the Khaki Campbell will lay its first egg between five and seven months of age. It will go on to lay an average of 340 eggs per year—meaning you’ll roughly have one egg per day per hen.

Khaki Campbell eggs are laid in the morning, so you’ll never have to guess when to gather. Add to that the benefits of eating duck eggs (higher fat and protein, richer and fluffier baked goods), and you’ve got a nearly perfect egg-layer duck—for a business opportunity or your family’s enjoyment.

With proper staggering of flocks, year-round egg production can be achieved. And with proper management, you can expect four to five years of egg-laying from each hen.

Time to Maturity for Khaki Campbell Ducks

Khaki Campbell duck eggs incubate for 23 to 28 days. After hatching, Khaki Campbell ducklings will reach maturity in seven months. If well-cared-for, with adequate space and food sources, these ducks can live for up to 15 years.

Are Khaki Campbell Ducks Friendly?

Yes, these ducks will grow to be gentle and friendly if they are raised from ducklings with an interactive, hands-on approach. If left to their own devices, they can be skittish.

For How Many Years Will Khaki Campbell Ducks Lay Eggs?

Khaki ducklings for sale from our hatcheries will provide you with delicious Khaki Campbell eggs, almost daily, for up to three years. After that, production will slow, but they will lay eggs until they’re about five years old.

Will Khaki Campbell Ducks Fly Away?

There is a common misconception that the Khaki Campbell cannot fly due to its weight. We know for a fact, however, that they can fly. Don’t worry, though. Their flight capabilities are limited, so they’re easy to keep at home.
