The breed most commonly used for egg production is the Khaki Campbell, which
should have a flock life of 3 - 4 years. It produces on average 300 eggs per
year, providing proper management and feeding are carried out.
Another good egg producer is the Indian Runner, which can produce over 250 eggs
per year. Artificial lighting must be provided to ensure all-year-round
production. (16 hours of light per day.)
