Well My white scovie hen fklew home today, so I ran insdie and got some scissors and did the deed. I cried a little. Her feathers are jsut so pretty.. But she also told me that they were pretty and she did not appriciate me cutting them. How do I know this? No, I dont speak duck but I have some pretty new scratches all over my hands and arms Ok - SO I know this is mediocre, but how is it fro my first time??
