The 6 khaki campbell ducks and 1 drake (Sir Francis Drake!) are now into their third year and they also free range with 13 other ducks and drakes of various breeds. (2 khaki campbell ducks and 1 khaki campbell drake, 2 trout runner drakes, 1 cayuga drake, 1 mallard drake, 2 buff orpington ducks, 1 white campbell duck – these are all 1 year old and they all make up a group who tend to keep themselves separate from my original 7 khaki campbells, I also rehomed a magpie duck and magpie drake with a double breasted khaki campbell duck at the beginning of February 2011 who also keep themselves as an individual group.
All 20 ducks/drakes are housed in the same barn at night and free range during the day. The eggs are collected daily.
I just wanted to let you all know this incase you are specifically looking for pure bred khaki campbells as there could be the chance of a khaki campbell crossed with a magpie, mallard, trout runner or cayuga!
It is recommended that you let the eggs stand and settle for 24 hours at room temperature upon receipt before incubation.

They are here!!!!! We are all so excited…I don’t know how I will manage to let them rest for 24 hours before I put them in the incubator!!!
Thank you very much for your speedy service,and we’ll let you know how we get on.

Completely forgot to let you know in all our excitement about our ducklings that hatched on Friday….4 little ducklings, successfully broke out. One was already dead in shell….probably stopped at about 20 days, and one just didn’t make it out….late developer…few days behind and just didn’t make it. Very sad but we are thrilled with the 4 we do have! One question now…is there any pattern at all with the colouring of the ducklings as to whetherthey are boys or girls. I didn’t think there was but one of ours distinctively has a stripe across its eye and is larger….could it be that is a boy and the others are girls? Or am I just hopeful?!!! Will send you a photo later on when the sun is shining into the kitchen so it is warmer for them without their light. Best Easter present ever and its my birthday tomorrow too!! Carolyn xx
Attached a pic of the wee fellows outside the other day in their run. They love it out there in the sun. Carolyn and family xx
Thanks very much. The first lot of eggs I got from you are doing very well, Andy.
(Andy ordered a second set of eggs from me, which is great – thanks Andy!)
Thank you for your swift delivery. Eggs arrived Saturday morning.
Just wanted to let you know we have successfully hatched 5 of the ducklings, early yesterday morning (27th) in fact, we heard one of them moving about in the incubator at 4.00am and were so fascinated that we watched the others hatch! Absolutely fascinating and they are all very very cute!!! We had two left to hatch when my husband and I had to go to work but they had broken through the shell and had a good size hole in so we were hopeful that they would be out when we got back a lunch time. I was a bit worried about them and when my husband got in, neither had progressed any further. He lifted one out and checked it but it was cold and had died. The other one he could see was still breathing but obviously couldn’t get out. So, against all the advice we had read but knowing that if we didn’t do something we were going to lose it, he opened the shell and put it into a margarine pot under the heat lamp. We are so pleased because it has lived and is now running around (or wobbling around!!!) with the rest of them. We could tell which one it was (who the children named ‘Lucky’!!) but now it has dried off they all look the same!! They are all doing well and eating and drinking a lot!!! I can see how quickly they are going to grow.
Many, many thanks for your help. It’s been and still is a wonderful experience, to care for the eggs and then actually see them hatch!!!
Horrah! all 6 Kharki cambells eggs hatched and I have 3 of each. What a success and thanks again for your brilliant service. kind regards Kelly
