Hi. I have a female mallard that is almost a year old, and for the last several days her feathers have been puffed. Also, she tucks her neck in shorter so it looks like she has no neck. She acts normally and searches for bugs in the straw. Is this okay? I'm really worried! By the way, there is another female in with her and a male. The male has been fertilizing her, but I don't know if this makes a difference.
