    Does it ever bug you when you see a loose, backwards feather on your chicken and you just need to get it out? Or am I the only pyscho person about this?

    You are not alone. All of us (myself and the three hooligans to whom I gave birth), upon seeing a disorganized feather, fix it. Either by putting it back where it belongs or picking it out. We like our girls neat and tidy.

    I do the same, unfortunately I have a couple of scrappy ex-battery hens that have never looked quite right. At least they are worm free now and twice as heavy [​IMG]

    I also had a predator attack last Thursday that left the 3 remaining pheasants all tattered looking. ( predator got the other 2 )They are so wild I can barely catch them at night to put them in their new safe "sleep house" let alone adjust feathers. But I figure they are still alive so that says something.

    I know how you feel... I care more about backwards feathers than they do.
