Below is a picture of my Welsh Harlequin Sookie. This summer a lot of True Blood was watched, hence the name, but my boyfriend and I are starting to question whether "Sookie" may be a "Bill." She isn't very loud, and when she quacks it sounds much like a female's voice, but the bouts of quacking are far and few so it is hard to keep good track. At hatch her beak was very much pink, a tad bit of shading down the middle but nothing more. As of this coming week she will be 11 weeks old, if this helps. Do the Welsh females beaks take a while to go dark? I figured by now that her bill would start showing signs of change and while it seems it may be starting to darken up I think this may be my seeing what I want to see. Her she is: The bantam pictured is a silkie-OEGB cross and was hatched within a few days of the Welsh's hatch. They have since become inseparable and what's cooler is how much their coloration and pattern resemble each other. While I hope Sookie is a girl it really isn't an issue if she is a he. My boyfriend and have already planned to start up a flock of Welsh Harlequins but would like to know sooner rather than later what genders we need to look in acquiring. Can't wait to hear back from y'all!!
