Hi - I have a rooster who has a feather trying to poke through his skin by his tail area . It looks painful, It is probably 1/4 inch high and is red. The side/tip of the skin has some tiny feathers coming out. The other full feathers around the impacted feather are turning a soft yellow color. When I touch the skin it is hard and does not feel like it is hot. Should I let him take care of it or will it brake through on its own. He is not bothering it or the feathers around it.
