It's the same as in English, except that they take out the "h" from Khaki - and change the word order, of course (Campbell Kaki). But they're rather more difficult to find over here. There are some breeders listed here:

Or sometimes people advertise them on http://www.leboncoin.fr.

oooh thats a good list. Got any more lists like that. the nearest one to me was 1h30 mins unfortunately and my missus will shoot me if I make her drive that far for some ducks. Leboncoin had nothing within a 2hr radius unfortunately. May stick an ad up asking for them but i find French sometimes (and english i'm sure) just fob you off with something even when it isnt the right breed

I don't have any more lists of duck breeders, unfortunately, but the same website has breeders of all sorts of other farmyard animals at:

http://volaillepoultry.pagesperso-orang ... esses.html

You just click on the menu to the left for the various different animals. The lists aren't always up to date. Sometimes I have phoned a breeder only to be told that they don't have that particular breed any more.

One and a half hours doesn't sound too bad. Down here in the far south west, there's almost no-one within two or three hours...

Oh, and leboncoin gets updated constantly throughout the day, so it's worth checking fairly frequently. Although the people on there are more likely to "fob you off". as you say. The ones listed on the other site are almost certainly serious breeders.

The khaki campbell breeders predominantly don't have phone numbers or e-mail addresses. so an hr and a half is much too far if I can't even check with them beforehand

You could try looking them up in the PagesBlanches section of http://www.pagesjaunes.fr.
