    Some pekins are different in size, shape, and beak color. My 2 pekins were. But, yup those are pekins!
    These were them when they arrived:

    I must not see the difference?? Pekins don't ALL look alike. The main point is, They are yellow (Completley), and have a pink/orange beak. Yours aren't standing any straigher than an average duck of that age, so they aren't runners, don't have brown on their eyes, so not buff. Muscovies look WAY different than those, so not that. All it pretty much points to is Pekin. Just wait until the feathers grow in, and then they will resemble Jojo more.
