The Campbell is a domestic duck bred by Adele Campbell during the late 1800s. Known for its prolific egg-laying abilities, Campbells are crossbreeds between Penciled Runners and Rouens, with a strain of Mallard for hardiness.[1]


Campbells are described as active and streamlined, with a moderately long head, bill, neck, and body. [2]

Drakes have greenish-bronze heads, with the rest of their body a warm khaki brown. Legs and feet are a dark orange and the bill is a dark green. Ducks are khaki-colored all over, with a greenish-black bill and body-colored legs/feet.[3]
