     According to John C. Kriner, Jr. in correspondence with Dave Holderread, he and Stanley Mason developed the diminutive and exquisite Australian Spotted in Pennsylvania during the 1920's.  Henry K. Miller started his own strain in the 1940's.  Mature weights typically are 30-36 ounces.  This exceptionally hardy and beautiful little duck is easily tamed and the females are good natural mothers.  Australian Spotted ducklings (along with Mini Silver Appleyard ducklings) are the hardiest of the bantam duck breeds.
