    Hello! I am new to the forum!

    I am looking for some Welsh Harlequin ducks (silver or gold). Needing two males and maybe a few more hens, unrelated. Looking to raise some this upcoming spring and thought maybe someone on the forum would have some adult birds for sale.

    Thought about ordering some from Holderread's but they are sold out of adult birds for this year.

    I live in IL and would pay for all shipping plus cost of birds. If you do not have any, maybe you know someone who does. Hope this is not in the wrong section.

    Thanks so much!

    Where in Illinois. I bought some from someone in Makanda Il. They have some drakes still available. He has very nice looking birds. It was on the southern IL craigslist.

    Small world indeed! He is the guy that I bought some hens from awhile ago. I thought about his add on Craigslist but thought the drakes were from the same hatching as mine. Was looking for some Drakes not brother/sister to my hens to start a line with. He does have really good stock!

    How funny. There is another add on craigslist for someone want WH. Is that you? If not the number is 618-218-3185 they might be willing to get rid of a drake or 2. I have campbells and needed some more females. Originally WH were called honey campbells so I bought some. Very pretty birds.

    I just bought his this week. I have owned khaki campbells for a few years. I was drake heavy after one of my females died. So since they are basically the same bird and thought they would fit in nicely I got 3 girls. They are beautiful. We free range and they walked away from my flock. My husband spent 4 hours duck (hunting). The neighbor brought them back home. LOL
