    my ducks went through their first molt last month. Things have since calmed down and the green grass is no longer litter with feathers....until now. Can they go through a second molt? Can't they just leave eggs and not feathers????

    LOL...my whole barn is FILLED with feathers right now! Did you change something that made them molt - like the lighting situation? Geesh - I hope my guys don't all molt again when they are done. They look like crapola right now. I can't wait for fall so I can take some pretty pictures.
