I dont know what it is or how it happens but from what I have read its when ducks/chickens get a new set of feathers?
I believe thats whats happening to my Pekin. I have a feeling its my drake because my babygirl's feathers are messed up after an accident (attack)
I went to our backyard and the yard is filled with LARGE feathers everywhere! he doesnt seem to look featherless but I have a feeling that the large feathers are from him since he is a bigger duck than my female...
heres a picture of some of the feathers i was able to pick up! keep in mind....theres more.
Could it be molting? my brother thought that maybe he has an itch haha but I dont know what it could be
