    My 5 1/2 week old pekin/mallard doesn't have any feathers of her little baby wing! Please tell me this is normal and she's about to start growing her big girl feathers! [​IMG]

    That looks completely normal to me, it's just all new growth!

    Yes, entirely normal. Maybe kind of freaky the first time you see it. I can't remember if I was worried about it. She's just feathering. Isn't it happening on both wings? It's usually both at the same time.
