We bought her as a snowy but some people say silver appleyard! She is the sweetest thing!
OK, I'll tell you the same thing I told Bleenie-the color of your duck is "I need to go live with easttxchick because I am so adorable".
I'm sorry I really don't know what color she is, but she is gorgeous.
Is there a Silver Appleyard Call?
Without a doubt, she is not a Silver Appleyard. She is a Snowy. The easiest way to tell is that SA is based on restricted Mallard (similar to wild-type, but restricted areas of pigment) and hence they have distinct eye-stripes. Snowy is based on dusky (regardless of who tells you otherwise) and hence no eye-stripes and generally the head of the hens is slightly hooded. There are other differences as well, mainly that SA is light phase and Snowy is harlequin phase, but the head color is the easiest thing to differentiate the two right off the bat. HTH.
We thought she was a snowy but he said by the sound of her marking she sounds like a appleyard.
Looks like my snowy hen.
