    DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR WELSH HARLEQUIN DRAKE

    I recently went to fair and won Best of Show with my Welsh Harlequin Duck. :D I want a show quality drake so bad to breed with her! I don't want a duckling, however, because it would take too long to grow and it might end up not fitting the standard. I am in Northern Va, practically on the...
