poultry for sale suffolk norfolk essexxThe Silver Appleyard Duck

These ducks are possibly the best breed of duck in our opinion not only because they were created in our wonderful county of Suffolk but also because of their wonderful characteristics. These are large ducks first created by Reginald Appleyard in the 1940’s in the village of ixworth. They were bred to be a dual purpose breed, the females are brilliant layers we get almost an egg every day from each of our girls and the males make a great meat bird. There was no waste and everything had a use unlike today’s commercial breeds. Not only that they become wonderfully friendly and have a very striking look. These guys are really the complete package and great to have around
