does anybody know what kind of duck this is?

hi! i have four 7 week old ducklings and 2 of them are pekins, one is a mallard and one i'm not sure of, he is the same size as the mallard, brown, but he had a wide white ring almost all the way around his neck. i was thinking maybe a mix? we got them from tsc and they don't tell you what kind of ducklings you are getting but they only sell 5 kinds, that are pekin, mallard, rouen, swedish, and khaki campbell. thanks!                

 


he is the one with the ring they are about 4-5 weeks old in this

 


and these 2 are from a couple days ago, i'm going to get some close up pictures tomorrow or the day after

There is such a thing as a Chocolate Swedish but I don't think that's what you have, They have white bibs, not bands. Also Swedish ducks don't normally have bright;y colored speculum feathers on their wings. The brown color should be more solid too, yours looks like it has the same coloring as the other. Based on these pictures, I think you have two Pekin and two Rouen. A Mallard would be half the size of a Pekin; they only get to about 2.5 pounds at full size.
