How Long Do Ducks Live?


It's a fact that a wild duck can live 20 years or more with domestic ducks typically living 10-15 years in captivity. The world record is a Mallard Drake that lived to a ripe old age of 27 years. Those same domestic ducks you see in your local ponds and lakes - abandoned by their owners to fend for themselves, typically survive less than three years.
