Campbell Colours

  Campbell Ducks  were first bred by Mrs Adelle Campbell in 1901 of Uley  Gloucestershire , who wanted to breed a egg laying duck that was not going to go broody. From the first Campbells the Khaki Campbell was developed. From a white sport the White Campbell was standardized and a Dark Campbell was created by a Mr H R S Humphreys in Devon to enable "sex linkeage" matings.
 
 Six years ago I crossed a Dark Campbell drake with a Blue Runner duck, mated a blue female offspring back to a Dark Campbell drake and so on five times. This year's offspring 2012 are now 1/64 Runner and 63/64 Campbell. We now have self blues, like the Blue Swedish (without the bib), dusky blue, like blue dusky Calls, and self Black. By using a Khaki drake we have self Chocolate Campbells.
