    Maybe they need some extra protein, that what feathers are. how old and what do you feed and can they forage? sometimes boredom will cause them to do dumb things too.

    Corn isn't a complete food.

    Your so right corn is like candy, they need to graze on grass and have feed appropriate for water fowl like an all flock or water fowl feed. That is why they are eating feathers.
