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.

one has survived May 3, 2016
Reviewer: terry davis from Ashtabula, OH United States  
We received our babies as promised they were alive. We have now lost all but two, we have never lost any of our ducks or chicks for any reason except predators, which we have worked hard to prevent.  We have 7 others ducklings we purchased from our local store and they are all thriving, we kept them separate from this shipment in the same conditions note some of the ones in this order had no 'fluff/fur/down?  under their necks, not sure of the significance only have two survivors from the order. Very disappointed
