Sorry; not really sure if this is the right forum for this question but any feedback will be appreciated. I have a 5 month old male Muscovy that I’ve had since he was a week old. We’d thought he’d gone through a full molt a month or so ago but he seems to be going through another, mostly on his chest and belly but also a bit on his side body/wings. Is this normal? We live in a year-round warm-hot climate. That tuft of fur poking out of his bill belonged at one point to that dog’s leg....

Ducks - muscovies in general go through quite a few molts until the get their adult feathers, then they're supposed to molt twice a year, I think. I've only had one so far with my twins, I think speedy is working on her first adult feather molt - though
