To study the effects of feed additives on productive and reproductive performance of Khaki Campbell in Kuliarchar Upazilla, Kishoreganj district of Bangladesh.The study was carried out between August, 2014 to May, 2015 at Kuliarchar Upazilla, Kishoreganj district of Bangladesh. A total of 120 female day-old Khaki Campbell ducklings were procured from local market from Kuliarchor Upazilla. The ducklings were randomly distributed into 4 treatment groups A; Digester®, B; Vitapoultry®, C; Alqurzim® and D; control) and the additives were included in diets at 2g/kg feed. Body weight, egg production, fertility%, hatachability% were increased in treated groups with the helping of feed additives compared with untreated group. Among with others minerals, the group B treated by Vitapoultry® gave significantly good result compared with others. Feed additives had tremendous result both productive and reproductive performance of Khaki Campbell ducks. So, it will be better to use vitamin, mineral and amino acid containing feed additives with basal feed for enhancing the productive and reproductive performance of Khaki Campbell ducks for enhancing the elimination of poverty in these haor area by increasing the daily income of the farmers.  Further molecular and serological studies need to develop specific diet chart for breed to breed in haor area.
