What will become of them?

Observation - What will become of them? - UK and Ireland. Description: One of the 'yuck duck' mallards with a brood. Some dark and some light (she has already lost five of them from her original eleven by this photo, and another one soon went). Will the light ones turn out light coloured like their mother?
