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.
