Wondering what others do when their peacock's train starts to drop. I know you can pull the train feathers (once they are ready) or you can let nature do it's thing and let them fall out on their own in their own time. DH and I got to wondering today though...I know there are folks that cut the train feathers to sell and so they stay nice they clip early, at the start of breeding season. Just wondering if anyone trims them as they are ready to drop? Wondering if this would be easier on the cock and save wear on the feathers. Any danger in doing this? To me, seems like it would preserve the quality of the feathers but not be quite as traumatic to the bird as pulling the feathers. thoughts?
