I have a light brahma hen who is going through her first molt. Prior to the molt, the feathers on her feet were not that noticeable; they were small. But now they are huge and she is walking in a very pronounced way - lifting her feet very high each step. Poor thing probably feels like she is wearing clown shoes the feathers are so huge! Would it be okay to cut the feathers back a bit so she isn't overwhelmed by them? Or, is that not wise? I thought she'd get used to her new "feet", but it's been a month at least and she is still walking like they are in the way.
Thanks for any advice. :)
