One of my Old Ladies hatched out a baby that looks a lot like your dark duck. Since I have both Khaki Cambell & Rouen ducks who all lay eggs all over, as do the Pekins, my guess for mine is something x Khaki Campbell. The Rouen babies at my house have had the spots on their backs when downy. And eye stripes. The other thing to consider is that the white of a Pekin is a recessive c gene, so theoretically the white Pekin could have a dark duckling, say if a black runner gene was introduced.

With the markings on thewings starting to show it might be a mallard, if not it could be a wood duck. Might have to wait a little longer to know for sure. the other one is most likely a Peking duck.
