Ducks: At Ruff Row we love our ducks, we use them for herding and love baking with their eggs. We have two breeds Dark Khaki Campbells and Runnder Ducks. Khakis are laying machines and better to work the dogs on as they are more co-operative than the runners. The runners challenge the dogs, and also are very amusing to watch with their upright stance.
Khaki Campbells: These birds are known for their egg laying-and lay eggs they do. I truly believe they'll give any chicken a run for its money, laying an average of 320 eggs a year. Campbell ducks are smaller than the anconas weighing in at 3-5 pounds. They come in khaki, dark and white (though the latter two color varieties are somewhat rare in the US). My campbells hatched out in March started laying in August. We currently have some dark campbell ducks for sale $15.00 each.

Indian Runners: These are a very special breed of domestic duck. When they were imported into Europe they attracted attention because of their tall, upright bodies and their incredible reputation for egg-laying. They had been found in the East Indies, from where they get their present name, but were referred to as 'Penguin Ducks' by Dutch explorers and some of the early importers. We currently have some indian runner hens in assorted colors for sale $15.00 each, including duck pictured below.
