History

The Campbell was originally bred by Mrs Adele Campbell in Uley, Gloucester, England. The breed was first shown in 1898. Mrs Campbell had mated her Mallard and Pencilled Runner to create a Khaki coloured duck.

Behaviour

The Campbell is a very practical, hardy duck which is a prolific egg layer. The best strains have been recorded to lay nearly 340 eggs a year although it is more common to expect around 200 eggs per year. They are reasonably quiet birds. Due to being bred with Runner ducks they have quite a vertical posture and are sometimes called \"Penguin Ducks\".

Varieties

The Campbell comes in two main varieties, Khaki and white, which is not a recognized variety in England. The original Campbell drakes had a dark green head, grey back, pale claret breast, black stern and white ring around the neck.

Great layers - Charlotte,

Consistent layers of large blue eggs. If you are planning on keeping some as pets, I would recommend buying them as young ducklings as they will be a lot tamer and friendlier.


Lovely duck - Philip,

These are about the best duck i have ever kept. They are very friendly, lay good eggs every day and love their food especially bread as a treat. Plus they dont want to fly.

Very handsome and extremely friendly. We also have chicken and they get on fine. (-:


good birds - Philip,

I got my white campbell ducks from the domestic fowl trust before the ownership changed they were very wild and you could not pick them up.I have managed to get them used to people but they we are still unable to pick them up. They have been wonderful layers and did so all winter they laid more eggs than our hybrids ever did. The damage to our garden was quite considerable.


- Ian,
