     Englishman Reginald Appleyard developed this hardy and colorful bantam duck in the 1940's.  At maturity, they typically weigh 30 to 36 ounces.  The females are exceptional natural mothers, and make excellent surrogate broodies for hatching the eggs of Call ducks and other difficult-to-hatch breeds.   Mini Silver Appleyard ducklings (along with Australian Spotted ducklings) are the hardiest of the bantam duck breeds.
