About Welsh Harlequin Ducks

Welsh Harlequin Ducks originated in 1949 by Leslie Bonnet, a Wales duck breeder. This duck was imported to the United States in 1968 but did not become for sale until 1984 due to the small flocks. They are a descendant of the Khaki Campbell Duck.  Welsh Harlequin ducks were admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 2001. They are listed as “critical” by The Livestock Conservancy.

The Welsh Harlequin ducks are very colorful. The drakes have green, white, silvery-white, gray, and greenish-black. The ducks have white, fawn, brownish-gray, black, dark brown, iridescent blue, and reddish-brown. The patterns of the colors are very complex from the head to the tail. The ducklings are very easy to sex because the males have a darker bill and the females have a lighter bill with dark spots on the top.

Welsh Harlequin ducks are good back yard ducks and are being shown at many poultry shows throughout the USA. These ducks are active foragers and adapt to their area easily. They are capable of producing 240-300 eggs per year. All of these traits make the Welsh harlequin an outstanding farm and garden duck. This breed of duck also plucks as easy as white birds and has excellent lean meat.

The Welsh Harlequin duck is a great choice for less-skilled breeders. They are one of the few ducks that will sit on, hatch, and nurture a nest of ducklings. When choosing your breeder flocks pick the birds that are the best egg layers, robust in size, and most active.
