    I was wondering what kind of ducks these are and if they are male or female?

    The duck on the right is a female and the left one is a male. I don't know a lot about duck breeds but the female is probably a Rouen, the black one I think is a Black Swedish.

    Are the mallard ducks?

    Judging from the size I would say Rouen, Mallards are smaller and weigh less than Rouens.

    Agree with Veer67, but will add that Sweede-looking one could also be a mixed breed rather than a true Sweedish. We had several that looked much like that here, no Sweedish in sight.
