    I know that a male duck is called a drake but the female is a hen or another name?

    Lots of people call them hens, but I'm not sure that is correct.

    ha ha I just started raising duck and there was an ad in the newspaper for the breed I wanted and I knew that the males were called drakes but I wasn't sure what female ducks were called.
