Welsh Harlequin Duck

Welsh Harlequin ducks are a fairly new breed, developed by Leslie Bonnett in Wales from two lighter colored Khaki Campbells ducklings in 1949. They came to the United States in 1968 and were accepted into the American Poultry Association in 2001 in the 'Light Duck' class. They are a beautiful bird, especially the feather patterns and colors on the females.

Welsh Harlequin ducks are becoming a very popular breed due to their multi-purpose characteristics. They are excellent egg producers, due to theirKhaki Campbell background, and have the instinct to sit and hatch a nest full of ducklings. They can also make an outstanding dressed bird for meat production.

These ducks are calm, inquisitive, and excellent foragers. Interestingly, Welsh Harlequin ducklings can be sexed after hatching with a 90% accuracy by their bill color. Darker bills normally indicate a male, and light bills ending in a dark spot a female. This can only be seen just after hatching, as after several days this distinction disappears. 

At maturity, they will average 4.5-5.5 lbs.

Orders of 2-9 ducklings ship after April 1.

LEG BANDS - If your birds were sexed and identified with colored bands, remove the bands upon arrival.
