Brought in England from Campbell and running ducks; It was introduced in Germany in the 1920s.
Due to its similarity to the khaki Campbell duck, the abacot ranger was previously considered a branch of it. The breed originated in England since 1917 from white runner ducks and white Campbell ducks. There they were originally referred to as “Abocat guards“. This combination also formed the basis of the next breed name. The purpose of breeding was a high performance leg duck. In 1925 such animals were shown in Denmark as “Liekers Streifige” (the importer’s name). They didn’t get their current breed name until 1933. In times of need by the Second World War, spring ducks were of great importance to the self-sufficiency of the population. and the breed was later returned from Germany to the UK in the 1970s. The Abacot Ranger was accepted into the British Waterfowl Standard in 1983.
Quite lightly built, but not too thin in form, largely the same as the closely related Campbell duck. Slightly upright posture, very lively and agile. It represents the strongest lightness of the wild color in terms of color. As the duck undergoes a change in feather color throughout the year, the head color becomes lighter and the fur color becomes more intense, while rump marks become more dotted.
