Khaki Campbell

 

a breed of ducks raised for meat and eggs that was developed in the 19th century in Great Britain by a poultry farmer named Campbell. Campbell crossed local ducks with Indian runners and Rouens. The body is cylindrical, with the front part slightly erect. The females are brownish gray, and the males bluish brown, with a black head. The males weigh about 2.2 kg, and the females about 2 kg. At two months the young weigh about 1.7 kg. Egg production is 180 to 220 per year; an egg weighs 80 g. The breed is raised in several countries, including Great Britain and the Netherlands. In the USSR it was used in developing speculum ducks.
