The Silver Appleyard Duck is a solid choice for a dual-purpose duck. Silver Appleyards are a sturdy, strong, and hardy breed, with a striking coloration in the mallard style. They are extremely popular for exhibition, pets, and for adding some extra beauty to the farmyard or homestead. When provided with space and water for bathing/swimming, they keep themselves cleaned and well-groomed, as if they are always ready for the next exhibition or show!
The Silver Appleyard Duck got its fabulous name from its creator, Reginald Appleyard, who developed the breed at his Priory Waterfowl Farm in Eastern Great Britain in the 1940s. In his farm brochure from the 1940s, Appleyard had a clear goal in mind for this duck breed. He wanted a duck that encompassed what he felt was the ultimate duck - large size with a long and deep breast, plenty of large white eggs, and beauty. The breed has since become increasingly popular in the United States over the past 20 and 30 years. Recognized by the APA in 1998.
