Anyone have a thought as to what breed these are?

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone would happen to know what breed of ducks these are? I got them last week from a friend and she had no idea what they were.

I think the darker one looks like a Khaki Campbell, I'm much less sure about the other one...could it be something like a Saxony? I haven't seen many of them as ducklings but the few pictures I get from looking it up seem somewhat close.



They're so cute, I love those little feet, and the markings on the lighter one are adorable.

@Ghibli I was thinking the same for the brown one too.  But these are the first ducks I have ever own, let alone raised, so I figured I would ask those with more experience.

It's been six weeks since I got these fellas. I'm positive the brown duck is a Campbell. This one, I haven't been able to match up with anything as of yet. I thinking some type of Mallard but I haven't come across any with the gold color before. If anyone has an ideas it would be appreciated.

Thanks, tough to tell when they are little and have zero experience with ducks. It's been fun learning though.
