Breeding stock and hatching eggs available in limited quantities in spring 2019
The big and beautiful Silver Appleyard Duck is a heritage breed developed in Great Britain during the 1930's by Reginald Appleyard.
Our flock carries both the standard coloration and the dilute or "blue" form.
They are currently considered threatened by the Livestock Conservancy.
In the spring of 2014 we acquired our breeding stock from the Holderread Farm and Preservation Center. From this group we selected our best breeders for our foundation flock.

Because of this, we have a variety of colors pop up in our hatches: standard silver, blue, white and even mallard.
