So I'm interested in buying these and they appear to be some kind of mallard but that's just my novice self talking. Also they are 5 months old how much do you think they are worth?

They look like Calls, post your pic here and see what the mallard folks say    http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/754458/mallard-thread-not-rouens-mallards/1280#post_15880357

 They are beautiful ducks maybe they are Mallards maybe Snowy? I have no idea but love their coloring.

Can anyone tell me what type of ducks are these, they are about 2-3 months old. I raised them in my house in a 100gl. fish tank for the first 2 months at least and then my husband and son made them a makeshift pond and house.

Looks like 2 very pretty Muscovy's  Make shift pond looks good, make shift house is worrisome with the predators we have here in the USA, ducks are every predators menu and need to be secured thoroughly at night especially.

The duck house isn't in the pic, but it completely closed in with door for them to go in and out. Thanks for telling my type of ducks I have.
