Because all you actually know is that the duck likes to swim in and around your lake in the backyard, also you know that The Chinese likes to offer Duck on the menu and that it has a sweet taste, but besides that, what do you really know about The Duck? Oh, and you might know that it likes to fly south for the Winter, and eat your grass. So, since you are not aware of too much about The Duck, let me share a little bit with You.
