This duck is the result of crossing a Muscovy Duck with a Pekin Duck.This crossbreeding makes it possible to obtain a duck that produces excellent foie gras and particularly tasty flesh. We produce Hytop 95, a Grimaud frères selection.
This is a white duck that reaches 4.4 kg at 84 days, produces a 600 gram liver and a 400 gram breast. The male duck of this type is specially developed for its fatty liver; the female is excellent for its flesh.
The Muscovy Duck is descended from a wild South American species that was domesticated in the 16th century and imported at the time of Christopher Columbus. It is a hardy species that is easy to breed. The Muscovy duck is distinguished by its low-fat red meat. The duck is recognized both for its meat and its suitability for force-feeding.
We produce two types of Muscovy Duck. The first is the R71L, a Grimaud brothers selection. This is a white duck. The male reaches 5 kg at 84 days and the female 2.75 kg at 70 days. The second is the R61, a Grimaud frères selection. It is available in 3 colors: white, blue and white stripes and coloured. The male reaches 5 kg at 88 days and the female 2.8 kg at 70 days.
The Khaki Campbell is a medium-sized, colorful, well-proportioned, graceful yet plump domestic duck.
The duck is a very good layer, producing eggs of at least 65g . The drake should weigh about 2.5 kg and the duck 2.25 kg.
