Can I help this friendly Wild Muscovy?

I live in a condo in Miami and a nice sized Muscovy likes to show up a few times a week. This duckie loves visiting my back porch as I always have treats for him. One thing I've noticed lately is that his wing feathers are very very thin. I can see his plumes, and in some places they show through fully. He's a wild duck, and I can't touch him, as friendly as he is. He's on the cautious side and I'm happy for that. Are there supplements I can buy to give to him for his next visit?


You can see his bare feathers a bit better here. He is very big, like a turkey.

I have Muscovy's and they are going through molt right now and that's probably what your seeing in this big guy who visits you. You could give him some extra protein to help him through this time. Dried meal worms are a favorite treat for mine.
