Plastic Mallard Duck

Daffy Duck's second cousin!

Our Plastic Mallard Duck

Our plastic mallard duck is 1 3/4 inches from tail to beak and 1 1/4 inches tall. It is made of white plastic with brown wings, a green head, and orange beak and fins. This duck would make a great addition to any school project or diorama on ducks or farm animals. It would also make a great party favor or toy. Check out our other duck toys and gifts.

About Mallard Ducks

The Mallard, or Wild duck (Anas platyrhynchos), is probably the best-known and most recognizable of all ducks. The male birds have a bright green head and the female birds have a light brown head. Mallard ducks live in wetlands and eat water plants. They are gregarious, migratory birds that form large flocks. Mallards ducks can reach 26 inches in length, have a wingspan of 39 inches, and weigh close to 3 pounds. Females can lay 8-13 eggs, which are incubated for 27-28 days before hatching. The duckling are born able to swin and feed themselves but stay near their mother for protection.
