[Excuse the late updates!]

The first ducks of the year! – Welsh Harlequins, the only Welsh breed of duck.

In the incy Sunday 21st March, 24 eggs – 11 off ebay and 13 from Lou

Candling at one week, 7 eggs removed; 11 hatched after the 4 weeks, 10 silver and 1 brown one from one of Lou’s duck’s eggs. The brown and 2 silvers stayed until they were three or so weeks old, the others went at a few days old.

Here are a few photos:
