    My kids were rubbing the ducklings belly and found a bump they thought was a belly button lol, I told them ducks dont have them.
    I felt their belly too, and they do have something both of them do what could this be?

    It IS the belly button. The umbilical connection to the yolk within the egg. Amazing, huh?
