    I just saw these spots on my muscovy when she was having a bath. What are they? She also looks like she is a little red under her tail feathers. Ive noticed she's molting at the moment.
    Brief history - she was broody, the eggs didn't hatch and she adopted the ducklings I gave her who are now 4 weeks.
    Any ideas please?

    Thought it might have been due to overbreeding.
