    We picked up 4 baby ducks for the kids for easter. They are growing and seem strong. They are getting feathers, is it normal for their skin to be very red in the bald spots? They seem to fuss with those spots a lot.

    Anyone know if this is normal? Anything we can do to help alleviate the itching?
