Duck Breeds Include:
The Khaki Campbell is one of the more famous and popular duck breeds due to its excellent egg production. They are a cross between Mallard, Rouen and Runner ducks. Campbells are prolific layers and active foragers. Most Campbells lay their first eggs when 5-7 months old and will average 250-340 eggs of superb texture and flavor per year.
The American Pekin was bred from the Mallard in China. An adult Pekin will lay an average of 200 eggs per year. Pekin duck meat quality and egg laying ability quickly made this breed very popular. Pekins are a gentle friendly breed that makes a great companion animal.
"Everything you do with a chicken egg, you can do with a duck egg."
