    They look more like rouen ducklings to me, but I'm not a duck expert. They are cute, though, whatever they are![​IMG]

    They look like mallards to me, but their bills are very small and round like a call duckling.

    Those are Mallards. Mallards have one eye stripe and Rouens have 2.

    The darker ones look like a Cayuga and a Swedish. But, they could both be Cayugas because sometimes cayugas get that light colored chest when they're ducklings, but turn dark later on.
