    I have a Black Tailed White Japanese rooster who apparently got into it with another chicken lastnight and got one of his tail feathers broken off half way down the feather, He is one of my show birds so obviously he cant have a broken tail feather in the show coop.
    If I pluck only the broken feather, will it grow back?
