Silver Appleyard Ducks

The Silver Appleyard is one of the more colorful breeds of larger ducks.

One of the defining characteristics of the Silver Appleyard ducks is their slower maturation process. Many pet owners and breeders alike will favor the Silver Appleyard ducklings to observe and enjoy its drawn out development process. Unlike other waterfowl which mature in a matter of weeks, the Silver Appleyard will take a few months to reach full size and plumage coloration.

These ducks are primarily silver and white, having a black stripe on the top of their heads, black tails, and black growth under their exterior plumage. Hens and drakes have differing coloration in that the drakes' heads are greenish, similar to the Mallard and Rouen. Also, drakes generally have a darker chest and back, with molted brown and black spots covering back and chests.

Silver Appleyards are commonly raised as pets, but are also shown in exhibitions, used for decoration, and farmed for eggs. Also, they are considered gourmet roasting ducks as their meat is lean and flavorful.

All Are Well March 25, 2016
Reviewer: Tracy Kvamme from Kanab, UT United States  
We received our little quackers a week early +++
We lost one shortly after we unwrapped the box, luckily we had an extra. They all seem to be doing well today and playing in their water pan. Thank you!

Arrived live and peeping June 9, 2015
Reviewer: brenda from turner, ME United States  
This was my first experience with efowl.  They were very good at communication.  All my ducks arrived alive, one had a crooked neck though,  probably a genetic defect.  He's still alive,  healthy, just crooked.  Named him Special Ed.
