    I have a RIR that has been overbreed by my very large, but hansome, Austrolorp rooster. I've had her isolated from him for about a month now. How long will it take for all her feathers to come back. Her back and shoulders were pretty much bare and I dont see a lot of regrowth at this point. Will they come back?

    Quote:Likely the feathers are broken off, not pulled out. So as long as there's still a feather base in the pore, the feathers won't regrow. Just wait for her molt and she'll likely be good as new.

    If it bothers you, consider a 'saddle' for her. She'd probably love you for it. [​IMG]
