Campbell Duck

Breed description

In the late 19th century Adele Campbell crossed Fawn and White Indian Runner Duck which was an exceptional layer (195 eggs in 197 days) with a Rouen Duck. She wants to create a breed that would lay well and have bigger body. Brooding behavior has been sacrificed in exchange for prolific egg laying ability in this breed.
