Meet Our Ducks
Golden 300 Hybrid
The Golden 300 is a strain we developed by crossing different breeds of high egg laying ducks to produce an excellent egg producing duck. This is a sex-linked bird which can be sexed visually at any age. The males are shades of black and the females are shades of brown. They are typically calmer than the Khaki Campbell.
The White Layer is all white bird that we developed from the Golden 300 Hybrid. The only production difference between the White Layer and Golden 300 is that the White Layer lays a slightly smaller percentage of blue/green eggs.
The Khaki Campbell is a heritage breed that was originally bred for egg production in England and Holland in the early 1900’s. It has been used ever since by those wanting to use a purebred duck for egg production.
