Anyone have Welsh Harlequins?

I have a friend who's circumstances are changing and he needs to sell his flock of WH. I told him I'd be interested in taking them since I'm already set up for ducks - got my first batch this spring. I know he takes excellent care of them so they'll be very healthy but what I don't know is how long they'll lay. His girls are in their second year of laying now and he was swamped in eggs the first year. I imagine that, just like chickens, they'll gradually slow down and be out of their "production years" by the 4th. Just looking for confirmation so I know what a fair price is for his birds.

Not sure about WH specifically, but yes, that's generally how a duck's laying life goes.
