Golden 300 Hybrid Layer Ducks

Are you looking for the ultimate egg producing duck? The Golden 300 Hybrid Layer Duck is the bird that was specifically designed to be highest value egg laying breed. It was originally bred by John Metzer, a California farmer who sought to create the highest value creating birds for his numerous egg customers. It is primarily based on the Khaki Campbell, which offers the best egg output of all the standard duck breeds. However, with superior feed conversion and more relaxed temperament of other breeds, the Golden 300 Hybrid Layer Duck not only offers an extremely high production of eggs, but the best overall value for any egg producing operation.

Simply put, Khaki Campbell hens are wonderful for relatively small egg production operations. However, in a larger commercial operation, the Golden 300 Layer Offers some characteristics such as larger eggs,higher fertility rates, a calmer temperament, and a faster rate to maturity.

Furthermore, Golden 300 Hybrid Ducklings can be sexed as soon as the hatch. Males will be darker than the females, making it easy for one to differentiate between the genders. This highly desirable quality, similar to Sex-Link Chicken, is only found in this breed of duck. However, this quality will not be present in future generations of this bird.

Awesome!! April 8, 2016
Reviewer: RICHARD from PLOVER, WI United States  
I've had these 6 ducks from EFOWL 2 years now and after they started laying - I tracked their production for a FULL YEAR.  
    In that year, they failed to lay AEPD (An Egg Per Day) only 4 times!! (hardly ever do they "miss"
    I am SWIMMING in eggs for a family of 5 and had to resort to selling the extras to my friends :)
    These eggs are NOT large - they only fit in JUMBO cartons and all my friends and I agree - they taste better than chicken eggs and make breads and cakes fluffier - sounds weird - but we proved it's true time & time again.
    They survived Wisconsin winters fine and are pets for my children - 2 of them follow the kids around the yard and love to be petted.
    I'll never buy chickens again!

Late email notification February 11, 2016
Reviewer: Mitchell Moore from Edgerton, KS United States  
I love the ducks!  I was disappointed that the email with tracking number to tell me they had been shipped was sent 6 hours after I picked them up from the post office.

I was a chicken January 6, 2016
Reviewer: Jesse Roberts from Marianna, FL United States  
I've always been too chicken to buy fowl online as I have always bought locally.  I finally took the plunge and it has been awesome.  The customer service was fantastic.  Efowl was quick to answer my emails and always kept me updated.  My ducklings are healthy and growing so fast.  I have ordered 26 more birds since my first purchase.  Customer service is almost a joke these days, but efowl takes it seriously.  Most every evening I grab my iPad and go "Efowling". Thanks efowl!

Healthy Ducklings! December 28, 2015
Reviewer: Russell K. from Southlake, TX United States  
I ordered 12 ducklings of three varieties and they arrived safe and sound. All are heathy and growing like weeds and will soon be out of the brooder. Jocelyn from customer service was excellent and promptly responded to my inquiry regarding feed and care. She took the time to look up my order before responding and I felt like I really received personal treatment.
