Golden 300 Hybrid Layer Ducks

In 1996, came Golden 300 Hybrid ducks that produced eggs more efficiently and consistently. These ducks lay more and larger eggs, and have a higher fertility, and are calmer than the Khaki Campbell. The Khaki Campbell may be a good egg producer in small flocks but their production in larger commercial flocks are not as consistent and large as the Golden 300 Hybrid Layer ducks. These Hybrid ducks were produced by crossing and utilizing the attributes of different duck breeds.

The Golden 300 Hybrid can be sexed at any age by its color as the males are shades of black and the females are shades of brown. Unfortunately, they do not retain this characteristic in future generations. So if you mate a Golden 300 Hybrid with another Golden 300 Hybrid, their progeny will hatch in blacks, yellows, and browns with no relationship between sex and color.

As adults, the females range in color from a very light brown to a very dark brown and often with areas of white on them. Males can appear much like a Rouenor a dull looking Cayuga or with white and dark markings.
