Duck


Ducks are aquatic birds, members of the Anatidae family. They are related to geese and swans. Ducks can be found in forested wetlands, near rivers, swamps, ponds and lakes. Domesticated ducks, excepting Muscovies, are all descended from Mallards. Ducks were first domesticated by Chinese many hundreds of years ago. Most farm ducks belong to a species called Pekin. Ducks have webbed feet. These act like paddles. Ducks provide us eggs, meat and feathers.
