    I have a 1 year old chocolate Indian runner. I noticed she is missing feathers on both of her wings. I do not notice any of them picking on her. She eats and stays with the flock. I don't know what's wrong!! It's the same on each side.

    This is totally normal and pretty soon the rest of your ducks will do the same thing!

    Here is one of our hens molting her wings!
