Where Can You Find Ducks in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life

Ducks are a little different than other animals that you can have on your farm as you cannot buy them. There is no mention of them when you go to order other animals, and Van gives you no leads too. Once I discovered that these adorable fluffy nuggets existed, I looked into exactly how to obtain them so that you do not have to.

Here are the following steps to obtaining ducks:

  • Buy the pond from Takakura’s ledger for 10,000 gold.
  • Get married through natural story progression at the end of the first year.
  • Get to summer of year two.
  • Wake up after your partner. Depending on who you wed, they will either wake up before you or you will need to use the alarm clock to wake up before them.

Of course, you will have to make sure that you have space in your coop for the event to trigger. Make sure that you have two spots free. Sell off those male chicks if you still have more than one!

There seems to be some misinformation about obtaining the ducks out in the wild. Even if you buy the pond early in your farming life, you will have to wait until summer of year two to trigger the duck event. I bought the pond early and was led to believe that a few days later the event would trigger. This definitely didn’t happen but at least I can save you from the same confusion!

That’s that budding farmer. Now that you know how to obtain ducks in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, I hope that you continue to have a wonderful time with this slice-of-life game. There are a few things during the game that aren’t explicitly stated, such as how to continue to ride the horse during the night after it falls asleep. Happy farming!
