Ducks are common water birds. Most domestic (farm) ducks were bred from mallards. The adult female duck is called a hen, the adult male is called a drake, and the young are called ducklings.

Breeds: The Pekin Duck is a common farm duck. The ducklings are bright yellow; adults are white. They were brought to America from China in the 1870's. Another popular farm duck is the Rouen duck, which was originally from France; this duck still has mallard-like coloring. The Muscovy is another popular farm duck; this American breed has dark feathers.

Diet: Ducks have a varied diet. They eat insects, worms, frogs, snails, slugs, small shellfish, grasses, and other plants.
