Does this information apply to ducks as well?

The author of the article says: "No, as far as we are aware these pests do not affect ducks. When we conducted our backyard poultry survey in 2015 we did look at some ducks that were housed in close proximity to chickens. They have a very different feather structure, which I believe is unsuitable for the ectoparasites that we found on chickens."
