Hello Everyone!! I am so so so happy to be a part of this community!! I have learned so very much from all of you and am happy to say that out of 5 mallard eggs I got 2 happy babies that made it for my very first hatch. I am very proud and could not have done it without all of YOU! That being said....why on earth would my happy day old mallards be shedding their down everywhere in the brooder? I have not read anything like this yet. Is this bad? They are eating and drinking and sleeping and running around but I can't figure out why they are shedding. It literally left down on my hand and I can see it on the towel flooring. It's just weird... Comments will be much appreciated. Thanks guys!!!
