Duck Facts A male duck is called a drake, a female is called a duck. Babies are called ducklings. Ducks are related to geese and swans. The duck is the smallest of them all and have shorter necks and wings and a stout body. Ducks can live from 2-12 years, depending on the species. Ducks have webbed feet, which act like paddles. A duck waddles instead of walking because of its webbed feet. Ducks' feet have no nerves or blood vessels. This means ducks never feel the cold, even if they swim in icy cold water. Ducks provide us with eggs, meat and feathers. Ducks' feathers are waterproof. There is a special gland that produces oil near the tail that spreads and covers the outer coat of feathers. Beneath this waterproof layer are fluffy and soft feathers to keep the duck warm. Ducks keep clean by preening themselves with their beaks, which they do often. They also line their nests with feathers plucked from their chest. Ducks were once wild until they were domesticated by the Chinese many hundreds of years ago.
