Live Ducks brings you Full of facts and interesting tidbits about ducks.

A girl duck, or hen makes a loud QUACK sound while the boy duck, or drake has a raspy, muffled call.


Touching a duckling doesn't prevent the mother duck from taking care of it. It is however best to leave ducklings alone so as not to scare the Mom duck away or accidentally injure them.


Ducks sleep with half their brains awake. Ducks are more likely to sleep with one eye open when they are located on the edge of sleeping groups. They can detect predators in less than a second.

Duck eggshells have tiny holes (pores) that allow it to breathe. A hen's eggs can have 7500 pores, most found at the blunt end of the egg. Respiratory gasses as well as water vapor travel through these pores allowing the egg to breathe. For more information on egg anatomy and facts visit The Provincial Museum of Alberta website.

Ducks can live 20 or more years with good care and feeding. The world's record is held by a Mallard Drake that lived 27 years. Quacktastic!

Baby ducks are precocial, meaning they are born with their eyes wide open, with a warm layer of down, and are not fully dependant on their parents for food. Ducklings are ready to leave the nest within hours of hatching.

The first Pekins were imported to the United States around 1873.

A clutch is the total number of eggs laid by one bird during one nesting session. Clutch size affected by hereditary and environmental factors. When food is abundant, birds lay more eggs.

A brood is the total number of hatchlings, or ducklings in a clutch.

Ducks have very good vision, and they see in color.

Did you know that a duck's quack doesn't echo? Nobody knows why.

Bruce, I thought it was probably too far but I thought I'd try. We desperately need help at our adoptions so I thought I'd ask :) I'ts so much fun I don't know why people don't want to help :grin

As for your deworming, I'll leave that to your wife :grin
