I'm new here and have come to ask some help :) I am hoping this spring to buy some Welsh Harlequin Ducklings and start a laying/breeding flock. Welsh Harlequins were my first ever ducks, three years ago, I actually hatched them myself from local eggs, and I fell in love with them then. I still have ducks right now but no WH.
So my question has to do with where should I buy my Welsh Harlequin Ducklings?? I have heard great things about Holderread, and was thinking of getting them there, but I heard that his ducks have been bred so that they aren't as easy to sex at hatch like most WHs, which is one of the reasons I want WH's. Also I am not thinking of ever showing my birds so I am not as worried about showing confirmation. Basically, I am looking for healthy superb egg laying Welsh Harlequins, I would like them to look nice cause I do hope to breed and sell them. Of course I am also looking for cheapest with best quality.
Has anyone had experience with Cackle Hatchery? Are they good quality ducks? They sure are cheaper... or should I just go with Holderread?
I hope that made some sense!
Thank you so much in advance for any input!!!
