    With his teenage feathering it is hard to tell. Maybe a Welsh Harlequin drake. You may have to wait until after his first molt.

    My welshies don't carry their body that way, nor have that much white around the collar. Some kinda runner is my guess.

    My WH used to stand like that a lot when they were younger, not any more. I think the large size of the collar has more to do with it not being to breed standard. I think most breeds that have it are supposed to have a thin, uniform white band, but that's just based on pictures. I don't know all the breed standards by any means.

    It could be a Runner but it doesn't seem slender enough to me. Does is walk around upright? If it almost always walking around like that then it would be a Runner. If it is a Runner, it could be a Trout Runner. They have very similar markings to WH.

    He stands fairly upright but now as upright as our khaki Campbell. He's pretty upright here cause he was kind of excited I had just put him down to clean their enclosure and the other was Calling to him from the cage still.
