Duck has missing feathers or down

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have had my Pekin duck for 4 week. They all seem to be doing well. This is my very first time trying to raise ducks so I have no background at all. I have on duck that is acting normal but one wing appears to be missing some covering. It has been this way since we brought it home. Any thoughts?

molting out to adult feathers is what it looks like, but be sure they arent feather picking/eating.
