    #1 is a crested pekin or white crested as some hatcheries call them

    #3 look like they maybe mallards

    last pic is a rouen

    I'm sure if I'm wrong correct the info. I'm only guessing on the middle pics. I'm pretty sure that the last one is a rouen because of the 2 lines around the eyes.

    I think white crested and rouens...could be mallard though...white crested is a boy and you have two other boys also

    The White is a Crested Pekin, the others look to be Mallards to me, since if they were rouens they would be the same size as the pekin id think. But then again they are young looking so they could be rouens. Two females and a male. Good job on the find!

    I think the rouens or mallards are two males and a female...two have green on their face, one is just not in all the way

    Quote:Woops! i agree. Two males two females. That one close up of the not so green drake never popped up on my screen.
