Welsh Harlequin

A good all purpose duck

A review on: Welsh Harlequin
Banjosan

Pros: Calm, quiet, winter hardy, good for meat and eggs, make good mothers

Cons: The drakes are randy but that's a drake for you!

I have kept Welsh Harlequins for over 5 years.  I love the coloring and it changes slightly depending on the season or the age of the bird.  Like all waterfowl ducks can be flighty but these birds are  as calm as they come.  I expect one could tame them as a pet if one had the inclination.

“ I've had Anconas for over a year now, after admiring them for awhile before then. I LOVE them. My two hens are fantastic egg-layers. Since they started laying early this spring, they hardly ever miss a day (except for my hen who went broody - she took a few weeks off during incubation, and then about 1-1/2 weeks after they hatched she is back at it!). They are also quite calm and friendly,...” --wordgirl

Call Duck

“   I love call ducks!  They are the ideal duck for persons with not much room for bigger ducks.  To those close to neighbors, I suggest a pen of males as the hens are vocal.   These ducks are quick and efficient insect and worm eradicaters.  Provide them with a kiddie pool for hours of amusement.  With one wing clipped, they won't fly off.  They are...” --NajmoNests

“These are definitely ducks with personality and individuality! I have three and I'm extremely happy with this breed. They are strikingly beautiful and fun-loving, and quite intelligent. They run all over my yard and LOVE snatching up every slug and snail they can find, playing in the sprinkler, and trying new things to nibble on.  Mine are just over a month old at the time of this...” --Ibicella
