Gold Layer Ducks are very efficient duck egg producers.
Production: Golden Layer Ducks lay 220 to 245 eggs per year. Their eggs are between 75-90 grams. They are good foragers. We also have a White Layer Duck which lays just as well.
Temperament: very calm.
History: Golden Layer Ducks were started because the breeder wanted to be able to cost-effectively produce duck eggs. The breed was developed to produce the most duck eggs per dollar. The originator of this breed wanted a duck with a better temperament, that laid more eggs, and had higher fertility than the Khaki Campbell.
Colors: These are sex-linked. The males, drakes, are different hues of black and the females are different hues of brown. If you breed your own this trait will not stay.
Livestock Conservancy Status: Not applicable because they are a hybrid. There are thousands of Golden Layer Ducks in the United States.
Body Type: These ducks cannot fly because they are too heavy.
Weight: Our breeders weigh 4.5 - 5.75 pounds during laying.
American Poultry Association Class: Not classified because they are a hybrid.
