    They look like Mallards and Welsch Harliquin to me.

    Colored ones are Mallards or more likely Rouens. White ones are a little trickier as several breeds start out solid yellow. By far Pekins are the most common though.

    Rouens usually have two eye strips and I only see one in the pictures. Also true about all yellow ducklings but they don't look all yellow in the second picture. They look to have grayish faces.
