    My pekin duck has feathers falling out EVERYWHERE! I don't know if he's molting (his feathers are still pretty and not scraggely) but their are feathers all over the place like it looks like someone grabbed a handful of feathers and threw them all over the coop.....anyone know what this is or if he is just starting to molten he's only about three months old.

    He's molting. [​IMG] My yard looks like a feather bed exploded every time mine molt. It's normal for them to go through several molts as they grow, so don't worry--this is totally normal. Enjoy. [​IMG]
