    Calls are small, loud and fly.

    wH are larger so they don't fly

    Cause I'm just thinking. If I want to keep going and keep getting better I always need something as a goal. Always bigger always better. Idk just me I guess

    It depends, do you want them for pets, eggs, breeding and selling, etc? If you want them for eggs then I would get the Welshies, if you want to breed and sell them then both can go for a good price, but calls are a little more expensive. For pets, my Welshies are very sweet and though I bought my calls from a breeder full grown who never handled them, they have warmed up fairly quickly and I've heard from other people that they are very sweet. Calls are also much louder and can fly very well whereas Welsh Harlequins have a moderate noise level and can't fly very well.
