Way more energy to fly.

Insert joke about the importance of getting all your ducks in a row here.

Touché.
Yep, that was a stupid question...

It is a bit of telling indictment.  "Hey drivers, y'all are bigger assholes than animals that happily rape their dead.  Seriously??"

Just don't give them a gun.  It's a rule.

One would assume that the testicles in male ducks can descend & ascend at will - otherwise their balls would be rather uncomfortable in near-frozen water like that

NO. They can't fly more than a few feet.

with that many ducks it looks like they are heading home at a duck farm.

Most domestic duck breeds can't fly more than a foot or two because of genetics and/or they are too well fed.

They don't even need to have their wings clipped or pinioned (amputation of the last bone in the wing)

That they may not be able to fly doesn't actually contradict that it's way more energy to fly. But it's interesting information to have that farm-raised ducks can't.
