The feathers are geometry so they render fast and no plugins are needed.
This model comes with several pre-animated scenes to get you started.
The wings are animated using the 3 bones within each. The wings are folded using one of several morph targets.
You can also make adjustments, like spreading the wing tip feathers and spreading the tail using morph targets.
The main controlling objects are: Mallard Null, Root, LT_Foot, RT_Foot is the name given to my BASIC set up, no animation, but it is rigged.
I have provided several scene files to get you started:

The feet and legs are controlled by LT-Foot and RT-Foot or LT-FootControll”, “RT-FootControll” respectively.

There are three 'neck' bones, a 'head' bone and a 'lower beak' bone.

There are 24 Morph targets.

The 'Mouth' and phonemes are controlled by 10 Morph targets located when you select the mesh and go toObject=>Properties=>Deform.

The wings are controlled by 3 bones each
and have 8 Morph positions, including flapping and folded positions


The Tail spread is controlled via Morph target 'Tail_Closed' andTail_Openedù, the Tail bone controls position and rotation.

The eyes have several morph targets:

The body's profile can be streamlined for flight with:

The toes are controlled by 12 bones on each foot.

To fold the wings use the morphs noted above.

But if you have positioned the wings by moving the bones, AND you try to use morph targets to fold them, you WILL have some pretty weird distortions that will freak you out.

Don't panic, the solution is to 'zero' out your wing bone positions, as or just before you apply the 'Morph' targets.

The model is made hi resolution by using Sub-Patching, Hypernurbs, so the actual geometry is much less than the rendered geometry.
