These ducks hatched outside my kitchen. Interestingly there were 3 white/yellow ducklings. When they developed their adult feathers only the female stayed white, 1 male has virtually 'normal' male mallard colouration and the other male is largely white with some coloured feathers. They are not albinos as even the female has the usual blue wing feathers.
