The Mallard Drake is one of the most beautifully colored of all waterfowl. Mallards fly, but will usually stay at home if fed regularly. They are a wild bird that generally avoid human contact.
‘Easter Ducks’ are ducks hatched in the two weeks prior to Easter. There is a high demand for ducklings this time of year. We do not recommend you purchase these as Easter gifts. Often ducklings purchased as Easter gifts are seen as a novelty item. Ducklings are livestock and should be treated as such.
