    Long story, ending with three of my Phoenix roo's LONGEST tail feathers getting pulled out [​IMG]. Two feet long, each. How long is it going to take for them to grow back, not fully; maybe just one foot?

    He was in a molt when they were pulled out. Fair is in April! I'm freaking out!

    after the feathers are broke/pulled out, they usually dont get the back until the molt, maybe different for phoenixs though
