    I have six ducks i got from a friend. Four of them look like Swedish ducks but two of the are more brown and look like a cross of some kind. Wondering if anyone has any ideas what kind they might be. Here is a picture of all of them. The middle two are the different ones.

    There is no way to know. None of them look like Swedish.

    Probably a mix of Swedish and something a lot bigger.

    There is no reason to think their parents were purebreds. They are possibly mutts with mutts parents.

    The very central one in the picture has the Rust gene, which is cauing her brown in the plumage. The others with brown in them are just brown feathered because of color fading. And I agree that they look like mutts, except for three of them.
