Hen or drake welsh harlquin?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
this is my first time hatching any welsh harlquins and I've tried to compare pictures of the bills to decide if this is a hen or drake. But I can't decide since I don't have any other ones to compare it to. Anyone that has any experience with this have any input? Thanks in advance!

Going by the bill method which is about 70 to 90 percent accurate, I would say that's a drake. Females will have mostly yellow bills with a black spot at the end, while drakes have mostly dark bills like your little one.
