Are Your Other Fowl Molting?
We Want Your Pics!


It's that time of year again where our birds start their metamorphosis into... well, okay, they don't turn into anything, but it sure is interesting to see them go through their molting process and leaving feathers all over the place!

For more information on your flock's annual molt, see here:

Yes, I think you should - here is my Muscovy Drake during his 1st molt - I had no idea what was happening to him until I contacted a rescue group and they told me he was molting! View attachment 2824128
My muscovy are looking pretty ratty this time of year. I'm always happy when they grow in their fresh new feathers.
