    Hi I was just wondering how long it would take a pheasant tail to grow back? I saw a couple of days that one of my roosters broke his tail about halfway down. Will it grow back at all because it's cut only halfway and not all the way?

    Thanks

    In my experience it won't grow back until after he has molted. I had two yellow goldens with the same issue and the tail feathered didn't grow back until after they had molted all their feathers.
