    I have a 6 year old hatchery white leghorn roo that has had a change in the texture of his feathers. A year or so ago his feather had the normal smooth surface of a leghorn, now most of his feather are fluffy like a mixed breed silkie.
    Is this a normal happening? I have been able to find info about changes in color but not texture.

    Can you post a picture? Is there any possibility that flock mates are feather picking?
