The Khaki Campbell Duck was developed in the 1800’s in England. Their developer, Adele Campbell, selected for a large carcass size while maintaining egg production. By the 1920’s this breed became recognized as the most abundant layer, laying between 165-210 white eggs per year. These beautiful ducks are a warm Khaki color, similar in tone to brown military uniforms. Adult drakes' heads should look noticeably darker brown or greenish-tinged when compared to the ducks.
