  • The Silver Apple yard a beautiful placid duck, they look very stylish with their classical yellow beak and orange legs and feet. They are quiet and are well suited for back garden existence. Traditionally kept as a dual purpose bird, they lay lots of large white eggs and they grow quickly making a good table bird. They tend to be very friendly and sociable, trusting and gentle, ‘a real looker’
  • With the exception of the Muscovy, all domestic ducks are believed to be descendants of the mallard. To keep domestic ducks it is not necessary to have a pond, although it is advisable to have a suitable water container in which the birds can bathe and mate. Consideration should be given as to how the water is changed – there are plenty of wide shallow plastic troughs available which can easily be emptied and moved around to prevent one spot becoming too muddy. One advantage of keeping domestic waterfowl rather than wildfowl is that the birds are likely to take more readily to being shut away in a house at night, reducing (but not eliminating!) the risk of predation.
  • All our ducks are bred here at Moon Ridge. We find ducks to be delightful, trusting and loyal. They are easy to keep and depending on the breed are prolific egg layers. Ducks tend to be very hardy and suffer from far fewer diseases than other types of poultry. They are easy to keep with simple housing and protection from the fox they will give you much pleasure and enjoyment. Domestic ducks are as happy on land as they are on the water, a simple receptacle of water so they can wash and preen is all that is required ( child’s plastic sandpit is ideal)Ducks are excellent foragers and will hoover up all your slugs and snails .

    I purchased two of these ducks back at the start of July and just wish I would have purchased three now. The delivery should have been delivered by a registered DEFRA courier but the carriers were stacked out with orders so Merv from the farm made the delivery himself with there own sign written transporter. They arrived when promised in a suitable box with vents in . I released these into the run when I arrived home and they made a few quacking noises before diving into the water container I have for them. The next day they had settled in and i was amazed how quite these ducks are . The past three weeks have been a challenge to put them into the coop at night but they do submit after being chased around a couple of times. After the first week I had the wings clipped and decided to let these out into the garden , they are able to lift off the ground if they are feeling like it but they generally they just like to show off there ability of wing flapping on the ground. They are now following me around the garden have ventured up to the back door of the house and like to be next to me when i am sitting in the garden. These really are a lovely natured Duck and are so joyful to watch. Thank you for bringing so much joy and fun to my home .
