The Hardy, Energetic Khaki Campbell Duck
In 1941, the Khaki Campbell Duck was recognized in the American Standard of Perfection (a publication that describes all recognized varieties and breeds of domestic poultry).
The Khaki Campbell 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.
We have Khaki Campbell ducklings for sale from our hatchery in Reinholds, PA.
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, they will supply your family with the best—from breakfast all the way through dinner.
The Temperament of Khaki Campbell Ducks
Khaki Campbells are high-strung, 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/higher 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.
