If there was a duck surfing championship, my Pekin girls would surely win. (yes, I'm positive they're both girls) They have done so much surfing, that the feathers on their necks, especially Pearl's, never seem to dry. Even in the morning when I let them out, their neck feathers don't seem to be fixed, clean and laying nicely. I can sometimes hear them surfing from inside the house! I've read about wet feather and having to bath the bird in dawn and dry with a warm dryer inside. Does this become a problem with too much "surfboard riding?" Do I need to intervene somehow? It's getting cold here in Illinois; expecting our first freeze tonight. The rest of their feathers look clean and waterproofed. Both birds seem to be healthy, happy, eating fine, etc. ps...my youngest son, who knows about the birds and bees, but since they are both girls, it doesn't seem to occur to him that they are "mating," tells strangers about how his ducks do a trick where they pretend the other is a surfboard and they try to ride until they fall off. Every time the stranger has the most confused look until I whisper what the real deal is.
