    Looks like a white pekin and a rouen. Sex is difficult to tell from those photos. I would need a better look at their tails. A curly feather means a boy and flat feathers are girls. Also, what do they sound like? From the one video it sounds like at least one girl. Females have a distinct "quack" while males are more quiet and sound like frogs.

    The white one is always loud and the black one seems to have a deeper quack and not as loud as the other one. Thanks everyone!!

    Sounds like you most likely have a male and female then! The rouen (Dark one) will most likely grow a curly tail feather, if he doesn't already have one. He will also get the green/purple head similar to the wild type mallard duck.

    It looks like the dark one with the blue and white wing patches is a drake. Females don't have such bright patches on their wings if any.
