    My little red hen got to close to a dog . The dog got her down and pulled alot of feathers out. She seems to be doing ok except she can't fly up on the roost. I put her up there with the others and help her down in the morning. Will she grow more feathers ? This just happened Thursday.Thanks

    The feathers will grow back. I had a duck in the same situation a while back and she healed up fine, regrew her feathers, and went back to her normal routine!
