    GEEEZZZ! All her long feathers on her wings are gone! She looks ridiculous with those stumpy little wings!

    Poor Chrissy. I will try and get some pics tomorrow.

    This is obviously a HARD molt, so now I know why she hasn't been laying.

    The no eggs part sucks. Chrissy is a small duck and her eggs are HUUUGEEE! The Welsh Harlequin girls are trying but their eggs are half the size of Chrissy's.
