    Mallard ducks feed on plants and small animals which are found in marshes, rivers and ponds.

The female Mallard duck is mottled brown and yellow in colour. 

     

    White/Khaki Campbell Duck

    Campbell ducks are the main egg laying ducks which were developed in 1901 by Mrs Campbell in Gloucestershire. These Campbell ducks have Mallard duck ancestry. The Campbell duck can come in both dark and light forms. 

     

    Barbary Duck

    The wild Barbary duck is blackish with large white patches on its wings. Domesticated Barbary ducks are often more dark brown than black and mixed with white particularly on their heads. You can also get lavender or pure white Barbary ducks. 

     

    Golden Cascade Duck

    The Golden Cascade duck is named because of its golden hue. These ducks weigh between 6 and 8 pounds. Female Golden Cascade Ducks have buff plumage and black beaks. Drakes have yellow beaks and greenish brown heads, a white ring on their neck and reddish breasts.
