Silver Appleyards are a heavy dual purpose breed.  They are fast growing and very good layers of very large eggs.

This is a non standard colour, but very attractive.  As with other blue ducks, they only possess one copy of the blue gene.

Last year, I hatched some females with two copies of the blue gene, similar to the butterscotch call colour.
