As a native speaker I have never used that sentence.

This will be my motto for life. "My duck is having a rest." - Duolingo 2016

So if you visit another country (or currently live outside of Israel) and someone asks you to speak Hebrew, you have a new go-to sentence. Or you could try to start your own slang. How's your duck today? ;)

"My duck is resting." seems closer to the meaning.

Why wasn't 'drake' accepted? It's one of the hover-on definitions!

The duck is probably tired from calling me so much.

Well, if a gorilla can have a pet cat, why can't an owl have a pet duck?

"would my duck is taking a nap" work?

No. "resting" and "taking a nap" are definitely not the same thing.

Well, לָקַח תְּנוּמָה could work (תְּנוּמָה is a slumber, a nap), but sounds a lot like a loan translation. Maybe one better says מְנַמְנֵם (to nap, doze is נִמְנֵם).

Jokes aside, but what is wrong (grammatically) with "my duck has a rest" ?
