    I bought a muscovy duck that aprently comes from the wild bloodlines and is black.. a very very beautiful duck smaller then my other female muscovys but even more friendly by far!

    When i brought her home she was FILTHY the person who sold her to me told me he had pigs so i guess she must of gotten disgusting from the pigs?

    Her breast feathers were all hard and looked like she had dirt and crap stuck to them. Well i let her take a bath in a cat litter box today and then i dusted her with poultry dust for mites and put some zodiac on her.

    I did the same to my other ducks and then i dusted the whole coop with poultry dust.

    I took away their food water and oyster shell when is it safe to put it all back? should i wait till tommorrow?

    ANd i noticed even after she took a bath on her own here breast feathers are still kinda hard any ideas?

    Not knowing what is stuck on her feathers, I would just let her bathe as often as she likes. They will come clean eventually. Any pics?
