    Well, it's hard to tell what gender they may be from the photos.
    A good way to tell the gender of a nearly grown to full grown duck is to look at their tails.
    Drakes, which are male ducks, normally have a curled feather on their tail while females do not.
    And from what I can see from the photos, they are both probably female.
    Keep an eye out to see if any of them lay an egg! :)

    How old are they? Drakes don't get their drake feather after 3-4 months or so.

    Before then, you can usually voice sex. If it quacks like a duck, it is a girl. If it sounds like it was out too late and has a hoarse voice, it's a boy
