    I have 8 ducklings about 6 weeks old. When I went to check on them today, two have had their wing feathers picked at until they are bleeding. They are just starting to quack so I know the two that are injured are female. I separated them but am wondering why this happened. I witnessed one doing the picking. Is picking like this typical? Thanks for any help.
