    Buff or Khaki Campbell. Hard to tell, for me, for sure...

    Not sure on breed but that duck infront is deffinitly a boy. See that curl on the tail feather? That is how you tell if they are a drake or girl. I can not see the other 2 close enough to tell you boy or girl.

    Yes, the one in front's a boy. Guessing the other two may be girls. Do they quack loudly?

    Also guessing buff, buff mix or khaki mix.

    I'd go with Buff, Khakis are quite different.

    The three in front are a trio of Khakis (the two flanking them in the back are Welsh Harlequins):

    Notice they are not blue and soft peach, but brown and rather small. The drake in the front of your picture has a blue head, which is like a Buff duck. He's not a Saxony, they have a neck ring and more variety of color (red front, pale hindquarters).

    Total newbie guess here, but I think you have a trio of Buffs: two ducks/hens and a drake.

    Thanks all !!! Does bill color have anything to do with breed? In the pic posted by GrannyCarol the girls have dark bills and my girls have yellow ones. All three have a splash of white on their necks. It doesn't go all the way around tho. The one in the front has a dark head and the other two have the same color as their body.
