Feather Footed??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have 4 ducklings that hatched a couple of days ago and noticed that one of them have, what looks like to me, feathers on its legs. Is that possible for ducks? These ducks are a mixed breed of Buff and Rouen. The pictures do not do any justice as to what it really looks like in person. What do you think?

I have heard of this happening from time to time.

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

People often ask if they should "put down" a bird that has suffered major injuries.  In my experience, birds appreciate the opportunity to recover.  Ducks have an amazing ability to heal, even from injuries that appear to be catastrophic.
