One is a crowned pekin female, but I'm not sure about the other one.  Try posting a bigger picture.

1 dad, 1 mom, 3 sisters, a whole bunch of chickens, 13 runner ducks, 2 lab/pyrenees/anatolian mixes, 1 pyrenees rescue, a norwich terrier and 2 geckos

I agree with the other posters, looks like a crested Pekin and a Khaki Campbell. At 6 weeks, if you aren't hearing loud quacks already, you will soon, if either are girls. Boys tend to have a much more subtle voice change and stay fairly quiet (not that they don't "talk", it's just not as loud, lol). This link will help you distinguish: http://www.majesticwaterfowl.org/artquacks.htm

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(
