    My boyfriend and I are planning on getting three ducks. I want one Khaki Campbell for eggs and he wants a pair of Cayugas. Will the three be fine together? Will the Cayuga breed the Campbell? What will I get, a beetle green good egg layer?

    Thanks

    I can only give you my experience with different ducks. I've got 5; 1 pekin drake, 1 runner duck, 1 rouen drake and 2 rouen ducks. They seem to be one happy family, live in the same pen at night, eat together, play together, play follow the leader all over the yard and mate together. As I haven't hatched any eggs yet I don't know what anyone would look like but I don't see any reason your combo wouldn't get along as well.
