do they quack? Any with a whispery rasp are drakes, any who quack are hens-
If you arent sure, could you get close up photos of each duck so we can get a close look at the feathers around their tails-how old are they?
I got them at the end of February

In Khaki Campbells, like yours, the boys will usually have really dark feathers above the tail like your duck who is pictured alone. Females are often lighter and always have two-toned lighter feathers above their tails. The boys bills are turning blue-green and the girls bills are getting darker pinky brown. In your picture of the two ducks. The one in front is a drake and the one behind him is a hen. Below is an old picture of two of mine.

It look to me like you have 4 girls and 2 boys.
