    The back two are Khaki Campbells, one male and one female. (If they both have curly tail feathers, then they are both males but they look to be female and male). The Pekin is a female.

    The khakis are both drakes. And yes the Pekin is a female.

    So you'll need to get 7 more hens or rehome a drake.

    Well, (if you buy them) you have 2 drakes and one hen. The proper ratio is 1 drake to every 3-5 hens. You either need more hens or get rid of one drake.
    Because, the drakes will fight each other and over-mate the female, causing her to become hurt. They could also turn aggressive towards you. Sometimes, they'll rape each other too.
