    One more question. This is Taylor Hope and Lucky 13. Taylor is the yellow one, Does she look like harlequin. I know her daddy is harlequin. Grace or Hannah could be her mom, I am just curious.

    Quack looks to me to be a blue swedish duck. She is very pretty anyway.

    Hannah and Grace could WH or cross bred- its a bit hard to tell with them both fuffing up like they are. There are different kinds of WH- some lighter and some darker - These two actually look very much like a few babies I have growing at the moment- they were a cross between a white and a Harlequin Indian Runner.

    As far as Taylor Hope goes...She has a pale beak rather than the solid dark colour of a WH - but does look to have a tinge of colouring in places you would expect a harlequin to have colour as a duckling. A few more weeks when she starts to grow some feathers and it will be more obvious.
