    I have had my Pekin duck for 4 week. They all seem to be doing well. This is my very first time trying to raise ducks so I have no background at all. I have on duck that is acting normal but one wing appears to be missing some covering. It has been this way since we brought it home. Any thoughts?[​IMG]

    molting out to adult feathers is what it looks like, but be sure they arent feather picking/eating.

    So here is a close up picture of th wing. I am guessing thay are 5 to 5 weeks old because tractor supply said they got them at a week old. Please help I just want my babies to be healthy. [​IMG]
