Ducklings - Khaki
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
CARE OF DUCKLINGS- Ducklings will need extra heat for first 3/4 weeks and company for your new arrivals. They should not be kept as a single bird, if your hatch has resulted in only one chick/duckling then please purchase birds of a similar age for company. We sell chick crumb which is suitable for chicks and ducklings. Keep your young ducklings on crumb until around 6 weeks then move onto growers feed. Also once off heat keep your ducklings indoors until around 6 weeks of age, depending on time of year and weather conditions. Ducklings need heat for the first 3 weeks and at around 5c less than chicks.
