What do I do about my duck's dull and ragged feathers?
Provide them with swimming water several times a week. They must also be receiving a well balanced poultry feed. If you are already feeding that, try adding
some fresh greens and cod liver oil on a daily basis. Also make sure they are not infested with lice or mites. The bird's constant preening to rid themselves of
these parasites may wear out the feathers. Also make sure they are able to stay clean. Muddy ducks do not make pretty feathers.
