Roosters Vs. Duck

Roosters 

A rooster, yes as you all know, is a bird. One of the characteristics that differentiate it from most other species of birds is that it has two wattles and a comb. The wattles are the two visible appendages under the chin, and the comb is the red tail (appendage) on the head (top). These are more prominent in the male and are secondary sexual characteristics.

Here are few facts about the Roosters

  1. The heartbeat of a rooster is relatively fast, being about 290 times a minute in males and 320 in females while resting
  2. Roosters are coated with evolutionary feathers but have a few vestigial hairs scattered over the body. 
  3. There are about 175 varieties of roosters grouped into 60 breeds and about 12 classes. 
  4. Roosters have excellent memories and can identify over 150 faces.
  5. Roosters have good flexible toes with sharp claws that allow them to dig for food and protect themselves. They have sharp spurs on the back of their legs which they use to defend themselves against humans or other animals when attacked.

Duck

Ducks, again, I know you know this, are birds and are known as “waterfowl” because they live most of their life in water. In other words, they are fond of water! They are seen everywhere in the world except Antarctica, where it is too cold for them. Here are a few facts about them.

  1. Ducks have shorter wings and necks than other known waterfowl, and they also have a strong body. Different species of ducks look different with distinct features which have evolved based on the local climatic conditions.
  2. Ducks have sharp webbed feet that are nicely designed for swimming. Their pointed webbed feet act like natural paddles and they wiggle instead of stroll because of their feet. The duck’s feet don’t feel cold even if it swims in icy cold water because their feet have no blood vessels and no nerves.
  3. The eggs of almost all the ducks will hatch within a month. The mother duck will always keep her ducklings together to shield them from all the predators that always linger around. 
  4. The primary way that ducks protect themselves is by either swimming away or flying when they detect a predator. Ducks bite for various reasons, and not all bites are similar. When ducks bite, it can be harrowing. 

Let the battle begin: 

Ducks are relatively calmer between the two, and they are not known to pick up the fight. Ducks are known to just fly away whenever anyone charges at them. However, roosters get mad at almost everything, and this battle could be possible when the rooster begins the fight. 

We have two scenarios with the differing outcome.

  1. On land: On land, the rooster would win this fight because they have some severe claws and sharper bleak.
  2. On Water: On the water, the duck would teach the rooster a good lesson of not messing with them. The duck wins in water.

So the rooster wins on land, and the duck wins on water.
