Does water really role off a duck's back?
It does! See your yourself, just scroll back a ways: www.quackandquill.com
Damn straight it does. If you can get them to spread their wings they make great umbrellas.
All the water fowl are oily and fatty.
Yes, it does. It looks like they are all oiled up and the water beads up and rolls off.
Yes it does but hard to believe. I wish the saying was true for humans!!
Yes. This happens because water and oil don’t mix.When a duck is swimming or out in the rain, the duck produces oil from it's pores. With its beak, the duck rubs the oil over its body.The oil keeps the water from soaking through it's feathers, making the bird waterproof.”
