Quote:Where are those hard feathers? Sometimes you will get some hens/roos with hard feathering in their tails. Here is a picuture of a nice cushion on a rooster. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=246425&p=1

on their tails and wings :eek:
is that nromal?

Do you have any pictures of the birds? If I remember right, they are allowed to have a small amout of hard feathering in their tails, thought it is NOT preferred.

The wings should be like a regular birds wings, just heavily shredded.
I hope im saying this right.
