I called Hoffman hatchery today to ask how much their Welsh Harlequins weigh when they mature and they said around 61/2#. Cackle Hatchery has the same deal, 61/2 to 7 #. I thought typical weight for em was around 41/2 to 5. I might get em for holderreads or sandhill, cause it looks like they are bred to be what I thought was the more typical size. I live in nw ohio so I don't have any experiences from gettin em all the way from california. I really desire a smaller, more typical size. Am I wrong here, or do many get that big?
