Ducks

Ducks are relatives of geese and swan, but are smaller. They are also called “waterfowl” because they are found near lakes, ponds, and rivers where they prefer to live. Ducks have webbed feet for swimming. They act like paddles or ores do with boats. These webbed feet have no nerves or blood vessels so the bird cannot feel icy cold water if it's swimming in cold waters. The Duck also has a water-proof coat achieved by an oil that is secreted near its tail that soaks its feathers. Beneath the water-proof coat is a fluffy, soft coat that keeps the Duck plenty warm. Ducks have amazing bodies, don't they? Their necks can turn completely backwards! This allows them to “preen”, the word for cleaning themselves with their beaks. They spend much of their time doing this.

Duck Facts

It's a common misconception that Ducks “quack”. While this is true, some species “squeal” instead such as the Wood Duck. Ducks were once wild but were domesticated by the Chinese. In China, there are still hundreds of wild Duck species. The most popular farmed Duck world wide and the most popular breed in America is the Pekin Duck because it lays lots of eggs and provides a lot of meat. The first ship load was brought to New York in 1873. These are the Ducks that probably come easily to your mind. They are the white or cream colored Ducks with orange bills, legs and feet. The males and females look the same, except that the male has a few curled feathers on top his head.

Because of their ability to adapt to the cold in these ways with their body, they are found almost everywhere in the world. The only continent they are not is in Antarctica where it is too cold for them to thrive. Some of the Ducks migrate thousands of miles to warmer climates in the winter time to places where the water doesn't freeze. They know that there they can rest and take better care of their young. Winter is when they usually mate. The females will bring their prospect to their breeding grounds in Spring. The breeding ground is usually where the female, herself, was hatched. Once a female has created her nest of reeds or grass, she lays 5-12 eggs and incubates them alone for up to 28 days. The male stays with other males at this time. The Ducklings mature quickly and are able to fly within the first 5-8 weeks. When they are ready they will migrate, flying in a “V” shape the way Geese do. In captivity, birds might need artificial light to increase their egg production during shorter days (July-December). Depending on the breed of Duck, the species can live between 2 and 12 years long.

Ducks are very useful to humans, not only for their meat and eggs but also for their feathers. Their feathers are harvested in Iceland where they can be found all along the coast because the female plucks feathers from herself to provide comfort to her nest.
