I was told this duck was welsh harlequin/pekin mix. It looks more like a rouen to me. Any opinions

    I agree with the seller--it looks like a mix. A true Rouen would have a deeper body, more prominent keel, and slightly different coloration.

    Ok thank you! I was just curious. The picture doesn't show, but she also has the teal blue spots on each wing like a rouen.

    A lot late on this post but my welsh has the blue/teal spots on her wings too, she is sitting on welsh/pekin eggs now! maybe welsh/mallard eggs too if he was successful! She is gorgeous though!! I hope our eggs work out!
