Khaki Campbells are an attractive and docile duck breed that can be kept equally well in a duck house and run or free-range environment.
Members of this breed are lightweight to medium-weight ducks and weigh between four to close to five pounds once mature.
Drakes have a green bill and legs and feet that are usually a shade of dark orange.
The lower back, upper neck, head, and tail culverts are a brown to bronze shade, and the rest of the male Khaki Campbell’s plumage is a mild khaki in hue.
Female Khaki Campbell’s have ahead in a lighter shade of brown, typically a more golden yellow shaded bill, and more uniformly brown feathers in the shade.
Whether male or female, Ducklings are dark brown to black with a small amount of white plumage in the breast area.
This breed is very environmentally hardy. Khaki Campbell ducks have been known to thrive in cold climates where the temperature dips below zero for even weeks at a time.
They also live comfortably in humid and arid climates where the heat can be upwards of 100 degrees
Like nearly all domestic duck varieties, Khaki Campbell ducks do not fly
They commonly lay between 170-230 eggs annually. The hens typically lay even more eggs during their first two years of life. Khaki Campbell hens start laying when they are only five to seven months old, on average.
The average lifespan of a Khaki Campbell duck is about eight to 10 years. Although egg laying will slow down as the hens get older, it rarely ever stops entirely, and there does not seem to be a decrease in quality.
