    If you are going to show them you can keep the feathers slicked down or up depending on where you want them to go with unflavored gelatin or a quality hair setting gel. I have not tried it but understand it works well and washes right out. I had a lavender chick hatch out yesterday that needs a trim already!

    I thought you showed. Sorry. And I have heard about plucking...ouch. I have tried plucking around the eyes/beard and some even bled. I can't imagine pulling a foot/wing feather!!
