Hello! I'm looking for information about Breeding and Standards for Duck Breeds. The one I'm focusing on right now is the Silver Appleyard. I have 10 lovely SAs. This picture was taken before the last molt, while they were still less than 16 weeks old. I'd like to find other SA breeders and those knowledgeable about duck selection. The SA is a good egglayer and is in the heavyweight class. Ducks are great! I am ceaselessly amused and perplexed by their activities and attitudes. The purpose for my ducks is for eggs and Japanese Beetle control in my orchard.
