    All ducks molt :) It's normal that the male is losing color, he's likely molting from nuptial plumage into eclipse plumage. And females almost never lay while molting so that is normal too.

    Does anyone know how much a adult male Rouen is being sold as? I may have to sale my 2 year olds because they aren't getting along with the new babies I bought.
