Drake or hen?

Space land

I think I posted this previously in wrong section so here it is again ...I have several Pekin ducks and can tell difference between drakes and hens, however, a friend of ours was moving so gave us their ducks. They bought them from local pet store. One looks very similar to Pekins however slightly shorter and thinner. I’m sure she is a girl (white khaki Campbell?). The other is brown with a slight white ring around neck, and it’s head is a bit darker than body with a little bit of a green shine to it, and beak black with olive green. It has a Drake feather. But I have defiantly heard it “quack.” Not very often but it does every now and then. I think from google search that they are khaki Campbell. Is the difference in voices as noticeable as with pekins? They are currently in a paddock with a pekin hen. Only getting 2 eggs a day. They are about year old.
Green shine on head isn’t noticeable in pictures

The brown one is a Khaki Campbell drake. If you are getting two eggs a day then both the white ones are girls. They are likely either pekins or white layers. I believe white layers are a bit more slender than pekins in general (which are more of a meat bird). Also white layers tend to have a lighter colored bill than pekins, more of a peach or pink tone than bright orange.
Yes one is my pekin hen (the pekin drake got killed by a fox). They are just all quacking. No raspy voices like my other drake. Ill take a video
