    Hi, I'm new. I recently got four Cayuga ducklings. But I'm a bit worried because they r loosing the feathers on their backs and under their legs. I was wondering if that is common or weather I should be worried.
    PS they r about 4-5weeks old

    Do they have any sores or redness? Do they scratch a lot? You may want to check them for lice or bites. Please do post on the duck thread.
