Laying ducks

We are moving and need to find a new home for our 7 Khaki Campbell's, one drake and 6 laying hens. They do not need a pond, just a deep enough water dish to clear their beaks/nostrils after eating. These hens lay most of the year with very little time off in the winter. They need no special housing; they shunned the nice house we built for them in favor of a nice pile of hay protected from the wind all winter! They have produced ducklings and are fun to watch.

Khaki Campbell flock for sale

I have 2 groups of Khaki Campbell ducks (5 hens and 1 drake in each group). I want to sell one group (they are all 2 years old). They are actively laying, friendly, and raised totally organic. Duck eggs are larger and more nutritious than chicken eggs (Check it out by googling a comparison of duck eggs to chicken eggs). Ducks are voracious slug eaters. They also love bugs, greens, and earthworms if you dig them up (ducks don't scratch but use their beats to search for goodies. I keep my ducks…See More

"Just don't feed 'em bread, they'll shit a lot more if you do and its not good for 'em. If you build a pond for 'em it would be smart to protect it from predators such as coyotes, dogs, racoons, eagles, herons- maybe put some…"

"I am ready to sell a few of the ducklings as they are now big enough to do well and I have been able to identify the one drake I am keeping (the rest are hens). I thought $10.00 would be fair.   Pam "

"Tiffany, We raise meat rabbits to eat and sell. We are looking to occasionally introduce stock from other lines. Are there others on this site who raise rabbits and who would be interested in swapping or selling New Zealand or Californians? I would…"

"Pamela, I used to have Khaki Campbells and loved them! They are so entertaining to watch; full of joy in the most miserable weather (by human standards). Can you arrange a ditch for them to play in where water runs from a gutter? They love to swim,…"

"Thanks, Alicia, I will probably sell some of the ducks eventually. When I was ordering them I found I could buy 10 for almost the same price as 5, which was what I actually wanted. They are only a couple of days old, so I will wait to see how many…"

"Hi Pamela, You're going to love your ducks! I love mine: Betty, a Khaki Campbell and her daughter - a mix breed. They are droll, smart, noisy, characters who lay really well - in the summer. Of course my girls are older - don't know how…"
