White Layer Ducks

Are you looking for the ultimate egg producing duck? The White 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 best egg operation birds for his numerous customers. It is primarily based on the Khaki Campbell, which offers the best egg output of all the standard duck breeds. However, with the superior feed conversion and more relaxed temperament of other breeds, the White 300 Hybrid 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, except they have white embryos rather than dark embryos. The white embryos are important for anyone looking to produce Balut Duck Eggs. Also, the White Golden Layer has a much lower occurrence of blue/green eggs (about .1%) versus the Golden 300 Hybrid Layer (about 8%).

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.

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.

All ducks arrived healthy and lively. April 28, 2015
Reviewer: Tamara Conder from Carbondale, IL United States  
Thanks for working with me--originally I ordered 1 Cayuga, 2 Golden Layers, and 2 White Layers. When the order was delayed, I asked you to revise the order, which you easily did.

The ducks arrived as scheduled, and seemed just fine after traveling for 2 days. They are growing and doing well.
