July 2019 – Safeguarding Biodiversity: Khaki Campbells Galore!

Here are some of our Khaki Campbell ducks over at our branch farm in Yorkshire. They were originally bred by Adele Campbell in Gloucestershire. She created  the breed by crossing Mallard, Rouen and Runner ducks. This colour was introduced to the public in 1901 – well over 100 years ago! They are known for being fantastic laying birds and can lay over 300 eggs a year, which beats many chicken breeds!
