Aylesbury Ducks

This slow moving and very tame English breed has a large, deep-keeled body. Old males should weigh around 10 pounds and old ducks about 9 pounds. Aylesburies are excellent roasting fowl. They have long, straight pinkish-white bills, orange legs, and their skin is white, unlike most other domestic ducks, which have yellow skin.

Here's an SPPA article on Aylesburys.
