    Do feathers grow back ?
    Got a couple hens that have been abused by roos and was wondering if they'll get there feathers back before july for fair time.

    P.S. Roos went bye bye.[​IMG]

    It depends on if the entire feather shaft is gone, all the way plucked out. If it is, no, they won't grow back til molting in the winter. If the shaft is still there, yes, they'll grow back. [​IMG]
