    I have a two week old buff duckling. He seems like he's losing some yellow fluffy feathers on his side near his wing. Is this normal?

    I have no idea if its normal or not, but mine did the same thing, right along the top edges of their wings. Soon after their big girl feathers started to come in, so I figured it was just part of that process. Hopefully someone with more experience than me will be able to give you a better answer, do you have a picture? That might help.
