My Welsh Harlequins from Holderread's are now 6 weeks old and oh how they have grown. They have been outside for a few weks now and I hope to move them to their own big pen next week when their duck house is finished. They will have a pen that is 50'x48' all to themselves. They don't seem to need a pond as they never go in the kiddie pool I have in their pen. Is this normal? They just use it as a big water dish. They have no trouble getting in or out of it as they will run through it if startled. And Yes the one out front is not a Welsh Harlequin but a Stanbridge White I named Stanley.

They're getting so big!


It's not weird that they don't use the kiddie pool - my Khaki Campbells and my Dutch Hookbills hardly ever use the kiddie pools, they'd rather bathe in a dirty, muddy puddle than the nice clean water I put in the pool for them.
