Utility Breeds of Ducks: Aylesbury ducks : Exhibition Breed Standard
Contact Us ~ ~ About Us

exhibition aylesbury from Colin Dicks websiteThis image is from Colin Dicks website, award winning exhibition ducks in the Scottish Borders.

There are breeders all over the country. Sadly there are very few who are working on utility strains any more. So few are good meaty birds, most are either pets, cute but not productive, or selecting for the exhibition qualities which are very different.

the perfect Aylesbury duck :-
from the British Waterfowl Standards book 1999 - includes all ducks and geese; showing scoring; faults; superb paintings of the perfect bird for each breed;
