    She was born last October and has always been the lone duck, she was raised with people and no other ducks until she was about five weeks so she's always been a little awkward.

    I've been noticing lately that her feathers look ruffled like she's wet and just gotten out of the pond. She's also just been laying down on the lawn the entire day and not hanging out with with ducks like she usually has in the past. I don't see any open sores or anything and she's eating.

    She just looks like someone's beating her up and doesn't want to hang with the other ducks anymore. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow when there's more light out. What could it be?
