Welsh Harlequin Description

The breed was developed by Mr Leslie Bonnet around 1949 from two honey coloured mutations derived from a flock of Khaki Campbells. The Welsh Harlequin is a lively breed with a semi-erect carriage held at near 35 degrees to the horizontal. The size and composition are similar to the Campbell. The Welsh Harlequin is maintained for its attractive colour and egg laying capability.
