Welsh Harlequin
2014-09-08 20:14:56

The Welsh harlequin is a breed of domestic duck that was developed in Wales during the twentieth century. Its development began in 1949, when Leslie Bonnet found a coloration mutation in one member of his flock of Khaki Campbells. By 1968, after selectively breeding his flock to hold this color, eggs that would hatch successfully were brought to the United States and later live ducks were imported. It was officially recognized by the American Poultry Association in 2001. The Welsh...
