Blue speculum is a silver phase. He's a nice looking boy!

I ordered 5 welsh Harlequin ducklings from Meter Farms about 4 weeks ago. I had specifically ordered 2 females, 1 male and the rest straight run. Over the course of the first week they all changed so much i couldn't tell them apart. I know for sure one is a female. She is a loud quacker already while the rest are still peeping. the rest are also much darker than she is. I think maybe I only have 1 girl. Ive picked each of them up listening for a quack, but nothing yet. What a pretty breed though, and so relaxed and fun!

Could anyone tell me when WH ducks get their adult colors? My four girls are 15 weeks and three of them still have dark heads. They already went through their first molt. I'm assuming they won't molt again this winter. At least I hope they don't. Brrr Here is a picture from yesterday. It was their first experience with a big snow storm.
