Description:

The Welsh Harlequin is a fairly new breed, developed by Leslie Bonnett in Wales from two off-colored Khaki Campbell ducklings in 1949. They are becoming a very popular breed because they have excellent egg production abilities and they will instinctively sit and hatch a nest full of ducklings. They are extremely calm birds but also very inquisitive and excellent foragers.

The feather patterns and colors on the adult females are especially beautiful. Of the two color variations found in Welsh Harlequins (Silver and Gold), ours are the more common Silver variety. The Welsh Harlequin weighs 4.5-5.5 lbs and the female lays 100-150 large, pearly white eggs weighing 75-85 grams per year. A very small percentage may be tinted blue or green.


Our ducks will fully integrate with all the other breeds that we offer. If you want purebred ducklings hatching from your ducks, make sure you separate your ducks by breed during the mating season. Or you can let your ducks cross and see what different shapes and colors you will get with their ducklings.
