I have 3 5 wk old ducklings. 1 Pekin Female; Kevin (from the movie Up), 1 Khaki Campbell Female; Rigby (from a cartoon), 1 unknown sex Magpie; Mack. I have had them for 1 mth. If u all wouldnt mind, I have a few questions. Why do my ducks sometimes sound like turkeys, geese or seagulls? Is this normal? Also, my Magpie has developed what looks like 3 feather follicles have fused & the feathers are growing in the same place. The base is maybe a 1/4 in long of fused tissue, mobile not fixed, no infection signs & when inspected it doesn't seem to cause pain. It started growing when Mack started to feather. Does anyone know if this will resolve itself or will the Vet need to be called? Thanks for any help!

I don't think its a crest, but If it is a crest forming, how long will it take to grow bigger? He reminds me of a little elderly guy w/ a feather in his hat :).
