    Clyde won, Big Boy lost his tail feathers. Will they grow back ? He's less than a year old.

    If the feather is completely gone, shaft and all, it will start to grow back immediately.
    If the feather is merely broken, but the shaft is intact, it won't grow back until he goes through a molt.
