Aylesbury Ducks The Aylesbury duck is a domesticated duck bred mainly for its meat and appearance. It is a large duck with pure white plumage, a pink bill, orange legs and feet, an unusually large keel, and a horizontal stance with its body parallel to the ground.

The precise origins of the breed are unclear, but raising white ducks became popular in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, in the 18th century owing to the demand for white feathers as a filler for quilts. Over the 19th century selective breeding for size, shape and colour led to the Aylesbury duck.

They are wonderful pets as you can let them roam free and they are too heavy to fly, unlike most breeds of ducks. They are extreamly hardy and good at laying large white eggs.
