    We hatched our very first ducklings in our incubator last night. Mama is a Rouen, but daddy could either have been a Rouen (who was taken by a predator shortly after they were set) or a Welsh Harlequin. What do they look like to you? I'm finding pictures of what a Rouen/Welsh Harlequin cross would look like, especially as a duckling! I'm thinking they look 100% Rouen.

    Do you have any up to dated photos of your babies? I am wondering if I ended up with this cross. I was told I was getting Welsh Harlequin babies and opened the box and there were 3 babies that looked exactly like Rouens. Now that they are older they are very light for a Rouen and have a light strip on the front of their keels, so doubt they are pure Rouen.
