    Hi everyone,
    My friends and I are raising two ducklings for egg harvesting, and the baby Peking ducling has very raw, pink feathers. I am worried that she might have some kind of infection. But being a new “mom” I simply could be overreacting. Any advice would ne GREATLY appreciated.

    Looks like other duckling may be chewing on it which is not uncommon what size is your brooder photos would help and what are you feeding?

    Many times Ducklings lose the down before the feathers come in so begin to look a bit patchy. Very cute Ducklings.
