@Alexgoose123 Could one of the other ducks be pulling them out? It's molting time and my Drake looks pretty pathetic right now molting and his tail feathers are missing too he's been having so trouble with my gander. Upping the protein some while they are going through molt helps get the feathers in nice and pretty again. Good quality dog or cat kibble given as a treat helps

@Alexgoose123 is he like this all the time, or just right after he eats?
What does he eat and how often?
He may just be getting very hungry and overeating. Can you try getting him to eat more often?
I can see your concern, Rouens can get really chubby. However, this guy looks like he may be too slender. Can you adjust the food for now? You may be solving a problem that does not exist.
Ducks are unique - maybe he's not one of the overeaters.
Do you know how much food he's eating per day?
