A little curious question about Muscovy Ducks?

Do muscovy ducks hang around and follow their siblings pretty often? I ask this because I have a lot of muscovy ducks that hang around my apartment, and I often see very similar looking ducks hanging out with each other. By hanging out, I mean communicating with each other - not literally "hanging out"..

I know they all look similar in some way, yet they all look different in some way. I'm almost always seeing a couple of two muscovies that look Very similar hanging out with each other almost all of the time.

For example, there's a male muscovy duck that I named Angel - he's noticeably much more white in color than the rest of the ducks, yet there's another male muscovy duck that I named Raphael (Ralph for short), he's noticeably much more white in color than the rest of the ducks (except Angel). They're almost always hanging out with each other. I don't exactly know if they're related or not - but they look very similar and they're almost always together. This is the only reason why I'd think they're brothers. This happens with other very similar looking ducks too. There's even a group of about five female, black, white spotted muscovies that are almost Always together.

Do muscovy ducks hang around and follow their siblings pretty often or are they like against each other or something? Are all ducks unique and don't quite care who they hang out with?

Well their flock animals, mine all hang out together BUT they also separate some are related, others not. My 6wk olds are pretty tight but there babies, they will tone back as they age. So these are all wild Muscovy? they aren't found wild here, only kept. That would be different to see, the drakes are big compared to the ducks...
