Excellent for homesteaders, Campbell ducks are relatively easy to care for birds that will outlay many chicken breeds. They are active, energetic, intelligent, and great foragers.
These are a small duck, weighing between 4 lbs - 4.5 lbs.
The Khaki Campbell comes in 1 color. Males have a darker head with a brown body, while females have a brown body with some lacing on the feathers.
Prolific egg layers. They can lay 250-340 eggs per year. Eggs are white or slightly tinted, and large sized.
Easy to Keep and Raise
Campbells are easy to keep and raise. They will forage on both plants and bugs. They are energetic and active, and like plenty of space to forage. Their noise level when fed or excited would be a 3.5/5, and when relaxed and happy only a 1/5.
