What is the function of feathers?

I'm assuming you mean duck feathers, soooo, lets gooooooo! LOL Anyway, feathers help some ducks to fly, as well as keep them warm in the cold. Some ducks, however, don't fly, so the main purpose of their wings is to keep warm. Also, the feathers shed water, so when they swim, they don't actually get wet.
