    Should my male Red Golden be molting now? He's lost all his long tail feathers. Any ideas??

    Well my ducks, chukar and pheasant are starting to molt, but I think it so dang hot here. Been from 64 to 96 deg. Weird weather.

    I just wanted to be sure it wasn't due to illness or disease. Everything else about him seems healthy.
