I found this three feathers next to each other (the third i don't know if it is of the same species but the color is similar and it was right there beside those), they were in a field near a farmland.

Definitely from a duck sp., though i’m not sure which. Based on size, they could be from a mallard, a northern pintail, a eurasian wigeon or perhaps even a shoveler. Not a duck feather expert so i’m going to leave this one to somebody else
Stheal
Well... i think that could be common pochard's feathers since they were close to the ones i published before. In your opinion?
Val
Common pochard primaries are a lot smaller than this, so i don’t think these feathers are from that species. Did you see any of the other species i mentioned or just pochards?
Stheal
In my region there are all the species that you suggested, but the thing that confuses me is that I found them all within two meters... i have two other feathers that were there, maybe I could post them in another identification to try to unite the pieces of the puzzle
