Hola Santiago!
Donald's three nephews were invented to give him a lot of trouble in one cartoon, as only 
foils for Donald.  They were not intended to be primary characters-or even considered for 
making return appearances in other cartoons.  They were so unimportant, that 
background information was not even necessary.  I'm not evensure we got to hear the 
name of their mother (Donald's sister).   So, in developing the characters, it was easier
have them be triplets (three little kids can be much more trouble than one).  And, if
all energetic, wild demons, there's no reason to give them different characters.  Barks 
developed all the Duck characters much more than the cartoons did.  BUT, he didn't have 
license to change their characters from those of the cartoons.  So they had to stay
who acted as one.
