The Silver Apple-yard was originally bred from the mallard as a Runner . When they escape they get back with the wild mallard and you get a cross the is more the Mallard size and very pretty

Here she is acting a little more sensibly with her ducklings.
I Don't know how to make full size attachments yet

It's amazing how the babies usually look so different than the parents. LOL

Loved the shot of the juvenile mandarin, only seen those at ZSL Regents Park and somewhere else (in captivity though) and for the life of me can't remember where the other place was. great set of shots and liked the slide show (no volume as at work)

That's because bread again with a wild Mallard. Only 4 of those duckling survived. Two of each and the little yellow ones turned completely white and are  fractionally smaller than the wild Mallard.
It goes to show though all the tampering they do to obtain new breads.

There are two types of Silver Appleyards the large and the miniature. She is obviously a miniature cross but she still hasn't the curly tail of the Mallard
