    I'm trying to figure out what kind of duck I have. I'm thinking Silver Appleyard. In the picture with him is a Pekin. Any thoughts

    The size and build tell me you have a WH. They are a light breed duck while appleyards are larger and would be about the same size as the pekin and built much more stockily. Plus, appleyard drakes have silver markings on their face, like this. Yours does not.

    Yep, definitely a WH! Do you have any hens?
