Breed Matters

-

The Bell’s absolute favorite duck breed for duck egg production on the small farm is the white Layer duck. white Layers are available by mail order from many hatcheries. Other hatcheries offer similar breeds.

This amazing duck can lay 230 eggs in 40 weeks (a normal laying season). Each egg weighs larger than other egg-laying breeds such as the Khaki Campbell or Runner. white Layers are incredibly easy to herd and move together as a flock even when just several weeks old. They also adapt to change quickly — making them an ideal candidate for a rotational pasture system.
