    this is the male and she also lives with five silky chickens but they've lived together for 1 year and this has never happen and thats another duck and they've been together for a year too and theres never been a problem with them.... what does this mean
     
  2. That looks like molting......She is losing an growing new wing feathers.....;)
    Add some dry cat food that is fish based to her diet a couple of times a week to up her protein intake while her feathers grow in.....:)

    Cheers!
