    My order of Welsh Harlequins arrived yesterday from McMurray safe and sound. They all are doing fine so far. I bought these mainly for egg production and friendliness so as long as they produce well and stay calm I'll be a happy camper.

    They are so precious!

    Be sure to check out the Welsh Harlequin thread here on the forums. I know we would all like to watch them grow up with you[​IMG]

    Quote: Congratulations on your ducks, looks like they're all girls. Only one thing... they'll grow REALLY fast and eat a lot. In just a few weeks you'll be wondering where the heck are they putting all that feed. LOL.

    Thanks. Actually I think I may have at least 4 drakes in there. Solid, very dark gray bills on those. The rest have either pink bills with a dark spot on the tip or pink bill with a gray stripe down the center. Will try to post better photos later. I swear I think they've already grown quite a bit since I got them on Wednesday.

    Here's what some of them look like today. The first photo I'm thinking males. I have two more that look exactly like these.
    In the second photo I'm thinking females. Some have the stripe down the bill like these two others have just a dot at the tip. My best guess 4 definite males and the other 7 maybe females. Anybody wanna take a guess?
