Getting a DuckEdit
You can hatch new ducklings once you have purchased a duck. Just take any size egg and place it in the straw bin inside of the poultry barn. It only takes 3 days for a new duckling to be hatched and then another week before it turns into an adult.
Lifecycle: Duckling --> 7 days --> Duck
A duck will lay an egg once every second day as long as it is happy. These eggs can be shipped for a small price, gifted, cooked in recipes or converted into Mayo. You can convert the eggs into Mayo by using the Mayonnaise Maker if you have purchased the Maker Barn from Gotz.
The more hearts your duck has, the larger egg it can lay. You can increase your affection with your duck by leaving it outside, picking it up and down, and by using the Touch Glove to pet it. If you use the Touch Glove you can reach a Red Heart in the petting mini game with a score of 9000. Your duck will also have a higher chance of winning the Duck Competition if it has more hearts.
