About Duck

Duck is also a domestic bird, like chicken. Duck has two round eyes, a flat beak, two legs, and two wings, and their neck is long. Duck likes to be in water more.

The special structure of their toes helps them to swim in the water. It searches its food both underwater and on land. Their whole body is covered with small feathers, which protect them from water, sun, cold, etc.

The structure of their wings is such that they do not get wet by water. Ducks are found almost all over the world. Ducks also lay eggs like chickens, but their eggs are slightly larger than chicken eggs. The average lifespan of a duck is from 2 to 10 years.

Ducks are beautiful birds and they are found everywhere. Ducks have wings, but they cannot fly in the sky. But they can use their wings to swim very fast, in water. Ducks are also known as waterfowls because they live in water.

Many of the ducks are yellow in colour, but some are not. Ducks make a funny ‘quack quack’ sound, and female ducks make a louder quack than male ducks. They have a small mouth, and they use their mouth to hold fish in it.

A duck’s mouth is known as a beak or bill. Ducks prefer to live in small water bodies, and not on land or somewhere else. Duck’s baby is called a ‘Duckling’, and it learns to fly in 5 to 7 weeks.+
