I need some advice, my 2 muscovies were in the brooder (they're 5 weeks old) with 2 goslings and 8 other ducklings around 3-4 weeks old. It got crowded so my husband and i were building another duck house for them, however in the process both my muscovies have gone bald! It looks like either they or one of the other ducks have ripped out large patches of feathers. I have them seperated now, but do I need to seperate them from each other? This happened over a 2 night span and none of my other ducklings were harmed, from what I understand this is common scovie behavior, so I am guessing their doing it to each other? Any helpful hints or suggestions?
