    Its hard to say, what age are they?, they look like the black and blue one could be swedish ducks, the white one is defiantly a pekin/ runner

    We got them September 20th and they were tiny I'm thinking less than a week old at that time.

    The one on the far right maybe a pekin...

    I'd look around metzer farm, big duck hatchery they have loads of pics... if they are mixed it'll be more complicated though. They are very cute! welcome![​IMG]

    I found out where the ducks were purchased and called to see I they knew what kind of ducks they sold. Yellow is Pekin, black and yellow is magpie, gray is Swedish blue. That's what I've been told :)

    I'm no expert but don't magpies have more white? I want one and have been looking a quite a few pics. I would guess it to be a black Swedish. Very cute no matter what.

    yea I have no idea. I thought the same thing when I looked up an adult magpie. I will say a lot of the feathers coming in on its tummy are light?
