I am not very experienced with ducks but I would guess that the grayish one might be a blue Swedish pretty sure on that.  The yellow one could be a Pekin.  Those are my best guesses.  Good luck!:)

Thanks! I was thinking that on those two, not sure about the brownish one.

Im not super good with ducks but the grey one definitely looks like a blue Swedish! The yellow one is most likely a pekin. The brown one is the only one I'm not so sure about, maybe a rouen?

 

When you find out I definitely want to know!

The white is pekin, grey is a blue swedish, and the brown one looks to be a hybrid 300

Does the brown one have two dark lines going across the eye or one? If it has two, then I'm pretty sure it has to be a rouen. If not, then you have scratched off Rouen as being a possibility.

I will look closely at the brown one after lunch, I think it's just one line. Thanks for the help! We are enjoying our ducks!
