    You'll have to wait until it feathers in to tell the breed. :)

    Can you get a photo from the side? Could be Welsh Harlequin or Buff, from what I can see. Cute!

    Agree with amiga. Do you have a side pic?
    The light one makes me thing pekin, but if I am seeing right there is a shaded mask on that one which would likely make it a fawn and white runner.

    The darker one is a rouen

    The yellow one is either a buff or maybe a runner, a pic with better light and it standing alone would be helpful in figuring it out. It appears to have a light mask which makes me think buff, but would need a better pic to see the mask and how it stands.
    The other is a mallard. A rouen would be bigger and have a second solid eye stripe

    I agree with TLWR, the little one is surely a mallard. I'm leaning towards buff for the other, but I could be wrong.

    Rouen, I think.
