Khaki's typically lay a bigger egg more often, sooner and longer than even the best egg laying chicken breeds

Khaki Campbell Ducks are the best egg producers of all poultry, barring none (not even chickens!). Khaki Campbells are consistent layers of jumbo-sized+, white eggs. Khaki Campbells begin laying early at 17-22 weeks, and when properly cared for will lay 300+ eggs per year for many years. A 4 lb duck produces approximately 45+ lbs of eggs in a year, making them one of the most efficient members of the homestead. The eggs are nicely flavored, and are used much like chicken eggs for breakfast, and are exceptional for fine baking. Both strains are a selected high egg production line. Khaki Campbell Ducks lay their eggs at night and early morning and spend much of their time throughout the day energetically and efficiently foraging. Khaki eggs also exhibit an extended shelf life.

Khaki Campbells do not roost and can be housed in a low duck house (about 3 feet tall) or on the clean bedded floor in any typical poultry house. They are not intentional flyers or jumpers, so a low (2-3 foot) fence will contain them if necessary. Khakis have well-oiled feathers and a thick undercoat of down, making the adults remarkably tolerant to wet and cold, thus they flourish even though our Montana winters. Khaki Campbell Ducks are equally happy spending the night in the open under the stars. In these conditions, it is not until it gets below 10 degrees F. that their egg production will falter. Duck eggs are considered to be higher in nutrition than chicken eggs. For a nutritional comparison chart see http://www.duckeggs.com/duck-egg-nutrition-compare.html .

Though Khakis immensely enjoy a bath, a pond is not necessary to maintain their health and production. Many people provide a large water tub or even a child's wading pool for the Khaki's playground.

Khaki Campbell Ducks are excellent foragers, and if allowed to free range will substantially supplement their diet with natural foods. Though, Adult Khakis have the ability to assimilate many different varieties of food, and can be raised side by side with many different poultry and animals, we recommend providing them with Lakeland's "Gamebird / Waterfowl Breeder / Layer" free choice (or enough for 15 minutes worth of feeding twice daily). This will ensure proper nutritional balance to promote high egg production and a healthy life. Khaki Campbell ducks are inherantly resitant to disease and parasites.

One of the lines of stock used for this line of khakis is from Dave Holderread. For an excellent article written by waterfowl expert David Holderread on care of the laying duck flock, see:
