Khaki Campbell hatchings occur througout the year. Check back. There are also drakes available for that special ""holiday dinner".
The Khaki Campbell is somewhat of a departure from our preference for heritage breeds. That’s not to say they are a poor choice for the homestead. Indeed, Campbells are remarkable. They are alert, sprightly birds producing over 300 eggs per year. Khaki Campbells are hardy foragers, always on the hunt for slugs, snails and worms. In fact, they’ll clear your garden of slugs and keep the mosquitoes in check as well. Don’t plan on seeing a bunch of little ducklings running around though. This breed does not get broody which is one reason they lay so many eggs.
Khaki Campbells lay white eggs that weigh about 2.5 ounces. They love water - but manage to stay in good condition even when water is only in buckets and bowls. However, like all ducks, their feathers do stay in the best waterproof condition when they have bathing water. You don't need a pond for ducks, but so much the better if you have one. Even a sunken bathtub will do, but make sure there's a shallow end so the ducklings can get out again, or they could drown. Don't let ducklings swim until they're a few days old.
Mrs Adele Campbell of Uley, Gloucester created the Khaki Campbell Duck. She heard of an Indian Runner Fawn&white duck which had laid 182 eggs in 196 days, and purchased this prolific bird to mate with a Rouen. The result was a breed which could be relied upon to produce an average of 200 eggs per year. In addition to the Indian Runner and Rouen, wild duck (mallard) was also used to make the breed more hardy.
So why duck eggs? They are larger than chicken eggs, have a larger yolk, and are not as watery. The protein and fat content is much higher than chicken eggs making everything you bake rise surprisingly well while giving a lighter and fluffier texture even to cornbread.
Did you know? Most people allergic to chicken eggs can still eat duck eggs! Of course, verify with your Doctor that you are one of those people.
