If you are looking for a great triple-purpose duck, then the Silver Appleyard Duck is a great option. Developed by Reginald Appleyard of England in the 1930s, this larger duck is considered to be one of the most active foragers. This is very helpful for insect control. Silver Appleyard Ducks have the potential to hatch and raise their own ducklings and are considered one of the best egg layers in the heavyweight duck class. Silver Appleyard Ducks are also known to many to have very flavorful, lean meat. Both the male and female Silver Appleyard Ducks have beautiful plumage with colors including reddish chestnut, silver-white, gray, brown, and buff. Whether you are looking for a great white egg layer, gourmet meat bird, or an ornamental pet duck, the Silver Appleyard Duckling has it all and would make an excellent addition to any flock.
