    The Ancona is a larger duck that was nearly wiped out. Excellent layers and good on the table. They are white with black spots...no two alike.

    The ducklings look like this

    the Golden Welsh Harlequin is a medium bodied, great layer and good on the table so I am looking forward to them. The drakes are just as colorful as the silver welsh but they lack the silver and have a more muted bronze type color and the females can be very pale brown tones to darker brown


    Darker female
