    Yes, as does any creature with feathers! With our parrots in the house, there are always one or more feathers to be found!

    Yes, and to me they just look WAY more pitiful than the hens, I think cause they're normally so pretty. Mine act shamed and don't try to mate the hens or call them to treats. Couple weeks later, they're back in business.

    I was wondering the same. One of my cockerels has lost some feathers on his neck, and I see pin feathers growing out, but it happened overnight it seems.
