Hoping someone can confirm what I believe these colors to be. I was told by the person I purchased them from that the top pictured duck is a blue, the Drake is a lavender and the other duck is also a blue. Is this correct? If allowed to have ducklings, what colors could I expect? Thanks for any input!

To be honest I don’t. I’m just guessing based on the color that I’ve seen on other birds.
Ah. I mean, I could guess, but didn't want to for the OP's sake. Lavenders are rare and cost $. So, hopefully that is what they got. I have come to realize that not all people who sell birds are honest. Such a shame. :(

Yes it is a real shame that some people’s bottom line is profit and not the welfare of the birds that they are selling. :(

The first pic is a blue pied.
Could you get more pictures of your females legs , wings, feet and mask? Those legs look pretty thick to me.
Then the male doesn't look lavender. He looks more of a pearl grey pied. Better pictures to get his shine would better determine if a lavender.
The last one is a french white. Could you get pictures of it's legs, feet, and mask?
