White Golden Layer Ducks
Are you looking for the ultimate egg producing duck? The White Golden Layer Duck

not only offers an extremely high production of eggs, but the best overall value for any egg producing operation.
These birds have the same laying characteristics as the Golden 300 Hybrid Layer

rather than dark embryos. The white embryos
are important for anyone looking to produce Balut Duck Eggs

,higher fertility rates
, a calmer temperament
, and a faster rate to maturity
