Online I came across the silver Appleyard duck and thought that is what he looks like. Online it says they are critically endangered and rare in the United States. What breed do y’all think he is?

    Silver appleyards are becoming more common and hatcheries now sell them too. I'm no duck breed expert, but I would guess it was an appleyard too.

    Just thought it was odd becuse we got him from tractor supply and they said they only had pecking ducks. Oh well I was just wondering.

    He's not a Silver Appleyard... Silver Appleyard drakes have faded eyestripes visible in the green on their face... it's a distinct factor in their genetic color and makeup for the breed...
