    I noticed a week or so ago that one of the duckling's tail feathers looked a bit funky, and now they just look damaged and feel a bit brittle but all her other feathers look fine and she acts normally. It's not affecting the other duckling tho(her tail is gorgeous) so maybe it's just how she is lmao but you can't be too safe with them right?
