Tell us more about the gear used...
The most potental in my opinion have #2 and #5
The problem in the first two shots is the messy background... You can get rid of that by blurring it out and isolating the subject with a big aperture. If you don't have such lens you could give it a go in post processing but it usually doesn't come out that good...
I tried my best: (if you take more time for the job you can make it more convincing...)

I am using a Nikon P500 that is it.
Pictures 1 & 2 have a very busy background. If the Ducks were far enough from the background, using less DOF would create a Bokeh effect. There is a twig on the right that you can get away with it in pic 1 but not pic 2 as it's right in front of the duck. Pic #3 would have been a very strong image, but with the Ducks bill behind the other Duck it falls somewhat short. Pic #4 is a nice, simple composition that works, and is the best of your set. Pic #5 suffers from poor composition with that twig right in front of the of the Duck.
