    look like they could be Welshies from this pic. just a little older. they are beautiful.

    [​IMG]found this online..... Ducklings are dunn colored with a slight blushing of black (silver phase) or brown (gold phase) on their heads. Welsh Harlequins can be sexed right after hatching with about a 90% accuracy. Take a look at their bill color within the first 3 days and note that a your girls will have pink bills and boys will be darker. Silver phase will have a dark silver coloring on the head and Gold phase is a pretty golden-brown.

  3. look like they could be welsh. As far as gender, if you don't know how to vent sex than only time will tell.
