In France, most breeds of domestic duck come from the Mallard which is found throughout the Northern Hemisphere and which was introduced to Australia and New Zealand. It has been domesticated since the 13th century in Western Europe for its flesh and feathers.
The female is entirely brown while the male has a greenish neck and head, brown chest and gray body. Males and females have a few blue-violet feathers on the wings, forming the “mirror”. They are monogamous ducks that live in groups and nest on the ground. The duck lays between 5 and 15 eggs which she incubates for 28 days. They eat aquatic plants as well as small animals and can live 5 to 8 years.
