Silky Ducks are usually raised to be pets and ornamental ducks.
They have unusual lacy feathers. Feather colours include Black, White, Dusky and Mallard.
The birds don’t fly, but they like to swim, and forage for food.
They are small ducks, weighing between 28 and 36 ounces (800 to 1kg.)
Silky Ducks were developed by Darrell Sheraw of Pennsylvania, USA.
