A Muscovy Duckling with Thin, Silky Down??? This baby has had a couple bald spots since hatch but one was from me cleaning egg shell off it after hatching. It got it's first bath last night and this is what it looked like afterward!! I also noticed that it's ENTIRE belly is BALD, like it just didn't grow down?? and it's very chubby, more so than my other scovy babies(that i remember anyway). The baby down felt silky soft after it dried last night and this morning, it's very strange compared to my other babies that have nice, full, fluffy downy bodies. He/she is just so odd!!! It makes me wonder if one of my girls was slumming with the Wild Mallards! Depending upon sex & if I keep it it's name will be Pinny or Harry.
