🐦 Ducks are mostly aquatic birds living in both freshwater and seawater and found on every continent except for Antarctica. Their webbed feet have no nerves or blood vessels, thus, rendering them incapable of feeling the cold.

🐦 All domestic ducks are descended from either the Mallard or the Muscovy duck.

🐦 The more daylight there is, the more eggs a hen produces.

🐦 Ducks have excellent vision! They have a field of vision of nearly 340 degrees! 

🐦 And you know that saying about a duck’s quack producing no echo? That’s quackers for a duck’s quack does indeed echo. πŸ˜‰
