    Can anyone tell me what breed Quack is?. I know she is a she I have never heard a nosier quack LOL..

    This is Hannah and Grace. Do they look like welsh harlequins?

    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.
  3. Quack looks like a blue Swedish to me. Very pretty girl.
