A FLOCK OF KHAKI CAMPBELL FREE RANGE DUCKS

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS WILL GROW TO BE BEAUTIFUL DUCKS LOOKING A LOT LIKE A KHAKI COLORED MALLARD. THE ADVANTAGE OF THE KHAKI CAMPBELL OVER THE MALLARD IS THAT THE MALLARDS USUALLY FLY AWAY AND NEVER RETURN. THE KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCK IS TOO HEAVY TO FLY THEREFORE THEY STICK AROUND WITHOUT CLIPPING THEIR WINGS.

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS EQUAL KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKS AND DUCK EGGS!!!

HERE IS SOME NUTRITION INFO TO CONSIDER.

THE KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS WILL LAY 300-325 EGGS PER YEAR WHEN MATURE, SUPPLYING YOU WITH ALL THE DELICIOUS DUCK EGGS YOUR FAMILY NEEDS. DUCK EGGS ARE GREAT TO EAT AND ARE BETTER FOR BAKING CAKES THAN CHICKEN EGGS. THIS CHART IS A LITTLE NUTRITION INFO FOR YOU TO CONSIDER.

IF SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY OR CIRCLE OF FRIENDS IS ALLERGIC TO CHICKEN EGGS THEY WILL USUALLY HAVE NO PROBLEMS EATING DUCK EGGS. I HAVE MANY DUCK EGG CUSTOMERS FOR THAT REASON.

HERE IS ANOTHER SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON OF EGGS FROM MORNIGCHORES.COM https://morningchores.com/duck-eggs/ IT INCLUDES QUAIL, CHICKEN, DUCK AND GOOSE EGGS.

DUCK EGG VS CHICKEN EGG

THE KHAKI EGGS ARE ONLY A LITTLE LARGER THAN AN EXTRA LARGE CHICKEN EGG. THEY HAVE A SLIGHTLY DARKER/RICHER YOLK. THE WHITES ARE A LITTLE CREAMIER AND THICKER THAN A CHICKEN EGG. THAT IS WHY THEY MAKE LIGHTER, MOISTER AND FLUFFIER CAKES, PANCAKES AND WAFFLES.

THE KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS ARE GREAT PETS. THEY WILL EAT FROM YOUR HAND. AS THEY GROW OLDER THEY WILL FOLLOW YOU AROUND AND THEY LOVE ATTENTION IF YOU RAISE THEM AS PETS. THEY ARE QUIETER THAN CHICKENS AND PRODUCE JUST AS MANY OR MORE EGGS THAN MOST ANY BREED OF CHICKEN.

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS HIDE THEIR EGGS

QUAIL, CHICKEN AND DUCK EGG

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS WILL MAKE EGG COLLECTING INTERESTING WHEN THEY ARE OLD ENOUGH TO START LAYING. DUCKS LIKE TO BURY THEIR EGGS UNDER GRASS, STRAW OR SMALL STICKS. IT’S LIKE AN EASTER EGG HUNT EVERY DAY…BUT WHEN YOU FIND THEIR NESTS THEY WILL LAY IN THE SAME PLACES ALMOST EVERY DAY.

I HAVE FOUND THAT IF I PUT HOUSES OR BOXES ON THE GROUND AND KEEP STRAW IN THEM THE DUCKS WILL LAY IN THEM RATHER THAN HIDE THE EGGS. THEY WILL ALSO LAY UNDER ANYTHING LEANING ON THE SIDES OF THE PEN.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS IS…IF YOU HAVE SMALLER CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN THEY WILL ENJOY LOOKING FOR THE EGGS EVERY DAY! I’M ABOUT 50 YEARS TO OLD FOR THAT.

ABOUT KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS AND KEEPING THEM ON A POND

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS LOVE A POOL

KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS WILL NOT NEED A POND…ONLY A SMALL KIDS SWIMMING POOL WITH SIDES LOW ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET IN AND OUT. THE POOL IS MUCH EASIER TO WASH OUT THAN A SMALL DECORATIVE  YARD POND WILL BE.

YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKS DON’T DO WELL ON A POND UNLESS THEY HAVE A PEN TO BE CLOSED UP IN AT NIGHT. THEY DO NOT ROOST ON THE WATER LIKE MOST DUCKS SO THEY ARE EASY PREY FOR ANY AND ALL PREDATORS. 

IF YOU WANT KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS FOR A POND, GO AHEAD AND BUILD AN ENCLOSURE FOR THEM CLOSE TO THE POND. PUT THE KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS IN THE ENCLOSURE FOR ABOUT 2-3 WEEKS. AFTER THAT YOU CAN LET THEM OUT DURING THE DAY AND THEY WILL GO BACK IN AT NIGHT SO YOU CAN CLOSE THEM UP AND KEEP THEM PROTECTED.

SEW IF YOU DECIDE YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE SOME OF OUR CUTE LITTLE KHAKI CAMPBELL DUCKLINGS FOR YOURSELF PLEASE GIVE US A CALL AT 336-449-9574.

THANK YOU, SHARON.
