    Hey everyone!
    My ~1.5 year old Khaki Campbell has began fluffing herself almost all the time. I saw another thread on this, but I wasn't sure if an answer was ever reached. So, I thought I'd try again.

    This is what she looks like (nearly all the time):[​IMG]

    Should I be concerned? The fluffing is the only change I've noticed in her. She still eats, drinks, and plays regularly.

    Thank you for any help! :)

    You could check her for fleas or mites......I had fleas in my Duck house this summer......I never treated my Birds but treated the Duck house and replaced all the bedding........It is Cold here and my Ducks fluff a lot more these days also.....As long as she is still eating and a happy Duck, I do not think its a serous problem?


    Best of luck....

    Cheers!
