Developed in 1999, the White Layer has equal egg production to the Golden 300 Hybrid. The only minor difference between the two is that the White Layer lays fewer bluish colored eggs laying 200-290 extra-large blue eggs a year. All offspring of the White Layer are white. Our White Layer is a calm bird, much like the Buff, Cayuga, and Blue Swedish. They are rarely broody and are very hardy in all climates. Fully grown, white layer ducks weigh 4 to 6 pounds. White Layer ducklings are yellow at hatch, and adults are pure white with orange feet, legs, and bill.
