Penny Pre Moulting Bath

Cygnets are still intact and thriving, Popeye and Penny keeping them close and ever watchful of potential danger. Penny is entering the pre moulting stage and pulling at her feathers, I think there is some irritation and possible parasites that need expelled with the old feathers.

 Sitting on a nest for nearly 7 weeks is bound to allow some pests to get onto her body.

She was doing a lot of picking and had a vigorous bath. ( short video below ).
