    There was a feather there last evening, It was bleeding a bit at the base of the feather. I don't know if the ducks are getting more aggressive or what. Did she chew it off because it was irritating? Should I pull it? The goose is about 14 weeks old.

    I apologize that no one responded! Unless the wound is bleeding profusely, I wouldn't worry about it. Poultry naturally pick on each other through the pecking order. You should only be concerned if one is being excessively harassed by the other birds.
