I keep ducks as home as pets and in winter, I noticed that they become very puffy because they grow something called "duvet" in French (I think it means the same thing in English) and those duvet feathers are softer and warmer. Duvet is used a lot in pillows, coats and quilts or blankets today. Some animals that have the duvet feathers are gooses or swans. Many birds have duvet feathers too.

Ducks have buoyancy. They weigh less than water, which means they float. Their feathers do not attract and hold water as the feathers have an oil on them.
Because they're birds, they have evolved to have feathers so that they can fly. Ducks are specially adapted so that the oil glands in their skin excrete oil which the ducks preen into their feathers, making them waterproof and providing adequate insulation. The feathers create the perfect coat to keep out any water from reaching their skin and seeping in.
Swans have longer necks than ducks and are larger all around than ducks.

They float. Ducks feathers are covered in an oil which their glands produce, this oil prevents the feathers from getting soaked. So when you see a duck "cleaning" its feathers, it's actually distributing this oil.
