Welsh Harlequin Ducks

The Welsh Harlequin duck is a light weight breed originally developed in Wales in the mid 20th century. Descendants of the prolific egg-laying duck breed, the Khaki Campbell, the Welsh Harlequin Breed also have excellent egg production as well as an ability to nurture a nest of ducklings. They Welsh Harlequin is one of the very few breeds of domestic ducks that still have the instinct to sit and hatch out a nest of their own eggs. This breed is also a calm with excellent foraging abilities, making it an excellent farm or garden duck.

The Welsh Harlequin is also an excellent duck for the beginner or less skilled breeder. The ducklings can easily be sexed within days of hatching, the darker bills being males and the females having lighter bills with dark spots on the top.

Welsh Harlequin ducks are beautiful ducks with a streamlined build. They have a sturdy, upright posture and long bodies. Along with their beauty and egg-laying capacity, the breed also dresses well and can be raised for its excellent lean meat.

All extremely healthy and hardy May 13, 2015
Reviewer: Kayla Corbin from franklin, TN United States  
One of them even got stuck under the waterer for a night, I counted them but didn't realize you had included an extra. Even after spending his first night stuck in the crevice under the water, wet and cold, he or she still made it. Wow. They are hardy. Haven't lost any. Thanks for the extra duck.

New Ducks April 21, 2015
Reviewer: Kathryn Michaud from Acton, ME United States  
I got these for their foraging ability. Right now their only ability is making a mess, which they do very well. I got 8 of these, and one is a runt. All are in good health and thriving.

genetic problems? March 2, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from East Lansing, MI United States  
We ordered a mixed group of ducklings in February 2012 from eFowl, containing two Welsh Harlequin ducklings (also Welsh Harlequin drake, Blue Swedish and Cayuga ducks).  The first winter that we had them, both Welsh Harlequin ducks developed prolapses.  The first one was egg bound, and was only saved from the efforts of a very knowlegable and experienced avian veteranarian.  The second duck we were able to treat ourselves, with advice from the same vet.  We have enjoyed our ducks, and all arrived healthy.  But we can't help but wonder if the prolapses were at least party due to a genetic predisposition, since none of the other ducks had the same problem, and we have not experienced any prolapses with any of our other ducks from other sources either.  Last fall one of the Welsh Harlequins prolapsed severely, and we were not able to save her this time.

Welsh Harlequin Ducks February 18, 2015
Reviewer: Patricia Suggs from Pfafftown, NC United States  
We love our Welsh Harlequin ducklings!  They are so cute and very healthy.  We ordered two and one of them had died en route.  Efowl was wonderful.  They sent us two more and we couldn't be happier.

I will definitely recommend efowl and will look to them again when wanting more ducklings.
