    I'm sure some people will think I'm mad but this morning after my two girls had their bath, they stey started preening. Whilst Lily (my Aylesbury) was preening, Ham (my Khaki Campbell) came over and started helping her preen! It was such a lovely thing to watch - it wasn't aggressive behaviour, it was just adorable!

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    I've seen my Muscovy girls help each other preen.
