    I'm thinking the one that's different is a mallard. Just can't figure out what the other two are. Their feet are black with a little pink.

    The different one is too big to be a mallard, it's probably a rouen. The other too I'm not sure.

    The two that look alike look like Magpies! My favorite breed of duck! I really think the other is a rouen or mallard!

    They look to be pekins and honestly with ducks you either have to wait for the quack or wait until they are full grown at about 5-6 months to tell the gender, but guessing doesn't hurt :).

    Im going to agree with the rouen statement it is much to big to be a mallard duckling at this age.

    The other 2 look to be magpies.

    I was wondering about my little light colored baby here. The other should be mallards. But time will tell. I'm just not so sure about the lighter one.

    I would say Ancona's or Magpies! They look a lot like our Ancona/Cayuga crosses that just hatched. [​IMG]

    I really think their magpies. I've never seen an ancona with such uniformed coloring in the places magpies have coloring.
