The Golden Layer Duck is a high-producer of large, white eggs and is a great alternative to the Khaki Campbell for your backyard egg production. The Golden Layer Ducklings are easily sexable at hatch. Since this duck is a hybrid, subsequent hatches will not breed true and offspring will not be color sexable. The Golden Layer can lay up to 290 large, white eggs per year. Females will begin laying around 5-6 months of age.
Female Golden Layer Ducks are varying shades of brown, from a light golden color to a very dark brown with a white patch on their neck. Males can look like a Rouen or similar to the darker variation of female but black instead of brown, or even like a dull looking Cayuga.
