    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if someone can help me with naming the species of this duck. I have had her for about 2 years now. I found her when she has a baby at a flea market, and I have raised her for the past 2 years. When I first got her, she had fur-like feathers that were medium to dark brown in color. I know that she is a female because she has layed eggs in the past. I have current pictures of her.

    I am no expert but she looks alot like my Khaki Campbells. The beak colour on mine is different though.

    A Khaki Campbell? Never heard of it. How common is this duck in the US?

    It's one of the best farm ducks due to it's high egg laying capability. I want some!

    Khaki Campbell great egg layers. Could be a mixture with a Buff Orpington.

    I think that its a mix. To me, it looks like a Campbell X Blue Swedish. The color doesn't look kaki enough to be true and it seems to have a greyish cast to the feathers. It also has the white ring around her beak that a lot of Blue Swedish get. (though I'm sure other breeds do too.)
