    About 3 weeks ago our then six week old Wyandotte was injured by a predator. Since then she has been acting normal, but her feathers have stopped coming in. Our other Wyandotte has all of her feathers, but the one that was injured still has a lot of down and is patchy in some areas. Is there anything I can do for her?

    I suspect she won't regrow her feathers til after the next molt. You could try some extra protein.
