    I got these 3 ducks about 2 weeks ago! I was told they were either welsh harlequins or sweet emilys. I have been looking them up and I can't decide which one they are! They definitely don't look like sweet emilys but who knows! They are about 3 weeks old from what I was told! Any help will be appreciated! Thanks![​IMG][/IMG]

    Never heard of sweet emilys. When I did a google search some pages on White Layers came up. If that is the same breed then the ducklings would be all yellow. The ones pictured also look too dark to be WH but it is really hard to tell. Can you take another picture in natural light and a bit closer?

    They are also starting to get a bunch of feathers and they are brown. Like I said I will definitely get better pictures tomorrow! Thanks!

    They don't look anything like my WH when they were around that age so I'm going to guess they are not WH. The face of the one in the last picture reminds me of a SIlver Appleyard but I have no idea what they look like when they start to feather out.

    Cross breeds.
    Too dark for welsh plus they have eye stripes which welsh do not have.
