    The one in the pool is a Mallard, and the other one is a Rouen because of the size difference. Rouens are much bigger than Mallards. And just to let you know they are gorgeous!

    Yes plus the green head.

    I agree that they look like Rouen and/or Mallard or could be a mix.

    Both are males. Their heads turning green, their bodies turning gray, and the greenish-yellow bills are a dead giveaway.

    Beautiful ducks! The boys are always so much prettier than the girls right? ;-)

    That might explain the "little more ragged possible mix" look then :) wonder if that one's also much younger?

    The mallard is an adult. He is molting his juvenile feathers. His colors will be the same as the Rouen.
