I've been looking for Silver Appleyards for months and just won't be able to find any until next year. I am ordering a couple runners from Metzers, and was thinking of getting a few Welsh Harlequins. I like that they lay a lot of eggs, I need more layers. But I will also be raising a batch or two for meat. I was concerned that they classify them as a light weight. Are they too small to consider as a decent meat duck? I've really only raised and eaten Rouens, so that's all I have to compare as far as size of a cooked bird, and size of breast meat and all. I don't care too much what color the skin is, I don't really want Pekins. Should I consider Cayugas, Buffs, or maybe the Golden 300? They don't say anything on their site about their meat, just their abundant egg laying. I don't need the heaviest breed, but I want it to be worthwhile to process the birds and actually get some meat from them.
