    Several weeks ago I ordered some Welsh Harlequin eggs, I ordered 12 and got 15. I put the eggs in the incubator, and 5 were bad, So I ended up with 10 ducklings. But my question is are they really Welsh Harlequins? They look a lot like Rouens or Mallards, If they aren't WH, are they Rouens or Mallards? Could they still be Welsh Harlequins? I ordered them from here Cypress Duck Farm Please Help!

    The top one looks like it could be a WH but the other three dont, to me at least.

    Some of them look like Pure Mallard and the rest are a cross between Mallard and Welsh Harlequin.
