Did You Know....

Duck is the common name for a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. The ducks are divided between several subfamilies listed in full in the Anatidae article; they do not represent a monophyletic group but a form taxon, being the Anatidae not considered swans and geese. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water.

Ducks are sometimes confused with several types of unrelated water birds with similar forms, such as loons or divers, grebes, gallinules, and coots.

You can't tell the sex of a duckling while its still in its egg, however Hatch'n'Grow eggs do have both male & female ducks inside. When they hatch the only true way to tell the sex of the ducklings is by sexing them which is a profession in itself, which involves pressing on the cloaca (the backside). ...back to top

Duck will also eat gardens & vegetable scraps, plus insects & bugs. Fully grown ducks will even eat field mice or large frogs, small fish etc. ...back to top

 

Yes, a shallow dish can be filled with water and the ducklings will swim for you.
However, PLEASE NOTE: Ducklings can drown if you don't provide a step for them to get out of the water by themselves.

The duck eggs are locked away in the Hatch Box until the ducklings hatch.
Once the ducklings hatch, all of the eggshell should be disposed of immediately if you are worried or concerned about allergic reactions. If allergic reactions are high, its best to take all precautions and only open the hatch box when children are not around. ...back to top
