Name these ducks......

Abacot Rangers are a type of domestic duck, related to Mallards, which look a little like these.

Abacot Rangers are a domestic breed of Mallard, burt these ones are not a standard breed (they are a bit like the Mallard equivalent of 'mongrel' dogs).

Mallard breeds vary considerably in size, shape, and colour, but they are all the same species.
