    one of my muscovy ducklings(the white one with a ratty tail) has been dropping some of her feathers? theyre usually small and sometimes she loses down and i was wondering if that was normal? it is pretty hot outside but my other duck isnt doing it so

    I believe this is normal age for adult molt.

    @Miss Lydia has Muscovies and there is a Muscovy thread - I would check in there.

    My Runners molted at about ten weeks of age.
