Think you know a lot about ducks? Well, we have researched some fun duck facts to help you swat up on your duck knowledge.

Lack of Quack

Most male ducks are silent and very few ducks actually "quack." Instead, their calls may include squeaks, grunts, chirps, and whistles.

Team Work

Ducks are sociable and often live in groups, which can be called a raft, team or paddling.

Water Off a Duck

A duck's feathers are so waterproof that even when they dive underwater, their under layer of feathers will stay completely dry.

Preen Clean

Ducks don’t clean themselves in a bath or shower but by preening. They do this by contorting their heads such that their bills can access all areas of their body.

V for Victory

Ducks fly in a “V” shape, as this shape makes flying easier.

Famous Ducks

Two of the most famous fictional ducks are Disney's Donald Duck, who premiered in 1934, and Warner Bros.' Daffy Duck, who premiered in 1937.
