I introduced 2 female ducks to my 2 young drakes and one young duck. My young duck really hassles the new duck, Florence. Florence is getting food, but often does not get her share of treats. The other ducks have not harmed her but she does get excluded from the group sometimes. Florence now has no feathers on her chest. The others are molting too but I have not seen them lose so many feathers at once. Do ducks over preen when they are stressed or is this typical molting?
