    I have a 12 week old call drake. He has been molting into his big boy feathers. When he started molting he had one older feather on his back that was sticking straight up. Not at all angle wing. Just one single feather. I figured he would lose it soon but it is still there sticking up. He does have a few sections of his brownish colored older feathers, but not many. This one feather is attached and just sticking up and out. What should I do leave it?

    I would leave it. It is tempting, isn't it, to fix something like that?
