Please tell us, we bought the Millardes 30 pcs. They August 13 will be 4 months. They are now molting. They lose weight actively. We began to cut them in a panic, and the weight of only 3 kg. We hoped for more, because it is said that they are gaining much more. Caring for them is very good. (Elmira)
What is the reason and how to solve the problem?
Elmira, you know, from your question now it is difficult for me to immediately determine the cause of both the molting and the low weight of your bird. The care is good, but what? What do you eat, where do you keep, is there a source of water on the range and so on? This is important to indicate, since the causes of low weight lie only in these all moments.
As for the molt, it somehow started too early in your birds. This may be due to several reasons. First, external conditions may be so conducive, and, secondly, it may be the case in the stern. After all, molting begins in the mulardov with the inhibition of the ovulation process.
If you gave the purchase of feed, there could be some substances, hormonal agents that could increase progesterone.
Well, the last thing I can tell you about this, maybe you just have such an early appearance of ducks. Often, even such banal situations depend on genetics and heredity. Consider also the external temperature indicators and the duration of the light. This happens if the ducks are hot and there is no water source.
