    I have heard a lot of things but the "average oldest" around here would be a mallard at 14 years

    Normally 6-8 years, but some have been getting as old as 15. I guess climate/care, and genes have a big say. In general smaller breeds live longer.

    It's kinda like dogs is what I think. The smaller the breed is, the longer the avarage life span.
