In the late 1800s Adele Campbell crossed a Fawn and White Indian Runner Duck with a Rouen in an attempt to create a strain that would lay well and have bigger bodies.The offspring were crossed with Mallards to increase their hardiness.The resulting birds were prolific layers. The Campbell breed was introduced to the public in 1898. In an attempt to create a more attractive buff-colored duck Mrs. Campbell crossed her original Campbells with Penciled Runner ducks. The resulting color reminded her of British army uniforms, so she named these new ducks Khaki Campbell
The Khaki Campbell duck is mostly khaki colored with a darker head. They have Mallard, Rouen and Runner duck blood in them.
