Welsh harlequin or..? - Page 6

post #51 of 54






I'm a newbie to BYC and cannot start a post, so was wondering if anyone could tell me if 2 of these babies are Harlequin's? In the 1st picture, they are the 2 smallest, in the 2nd one is sorta hiding but the other is front left, and in the 3rd, they are the 2 lightest babies.. all pictures are of the same 2 ducklings, just over the last month or so.. I got them from a tub of mixed breeds, and when I looked up the hatchery they came from, Welsh were the only ones they resembled but we all know how that works..lol.. they were just different from everyone else, so I got them wink.png Same with the black Swedish baby..

Edited to add: in the 1st pic, all these ducklings are the same age, maybe 1 or 2 days difference at most, so whatever breed, they're smaller than Swedish and whatever the others are (bought as Khaki Campbell but who knows)

They look like WH to me.

Thanks smile.png I am a chicken girl myself, but have 2 rouen boys that have been bachelor's for a year..figured this spring I'd get them some buddies.. like I said, I picked them out by they looked 'different' than all the other babies.. but once I started researching to see if I could determine breed and saw the resemblance I thought so too.. really hope they are because 1. They are GORGEOUS birds and 2. What a steal, finding them in a bin at Tractor Supply.. I think the hatchery was Hoover Hatchery??? I'll have to double check that, but out of all their breeds, that's about the only thing they could be unless they have a crossed breed pen..

ETA: They did come from Hoover Hatchery
