    The yellow should be whites, yes. Though in the bottom pic, it looks like one white (bright yellow) and 1 apricot or possibly snowy (these are usually light colored as ducklings, but not as yellow and with a bit of a grayish undertone).
    Second pic looks like a blue fawn. It will likely feather out like a mallard, but blue fawn instead of gray.
    The others look to be gray, possibly pied. There's a lot of white which suggests pied

    HNNNNGGG this one has such a tiny bill! I'm so jealous!! Where did these calls come from? I need a tiny one to go with Wobs, 'cuz he kinda flips out and is terrified of larger ducks. ><;;

    I've been buying ducks with features I like ie small size tiny bill ect. My white duck was grand champion at the local state show and I got her for a song. Its possible that she's the mother of this particular duckling. I bought the drakes with the biggest heads and smallest bills even though their coloring wasn't my favorite (I love the silver appleyards best) I figured best way to go about things was to ignore colors until we managed a more typey body size.

    1 and 3 are the same duckling just from different angles 2 is the darkest of the lot
