    We bought these ducks back in late May, and I started a thread asking for help in determining if they were Welsh Harlequins, but they were just too young to tell. Now they're almost three months old and I am still unsure as to whether they are Welsh Harlequins. We bought specifically Welsh Harlequins because of their egg laying capabilities, but since day 1 they haven't met the typical standards of a Welsh Harlequin. I'd like some help in finding out if they are WH, out of curiosity and because I'd like to learn more about their breed if they aren't WH.

    Any and all input is greatly appreciated :D

    They look like WH crosses to me...

    My guess would be buff ducks aka Orpington ducks. Here are pictures off the Internet.


    I do not think those are welsh harlequin or mixed with welsh. We have both the silver phase and golden phase welsh.

    Beautiful babies though!
