    My ducks did the exact same thing. They always did their own thing and when the started molting they did everything together. They started molting a while back and they just stopped molting a couple of weeks ago. They don't lay any eggs while their molting and it can last for weeks and even months. My ducks lasted almost all winter! I just got my first egg this morning! I hope your ducks molt goes fast!
