forgot to add, if he's bleeding profusely, at comb,,,,and sometimes you hit an artery and the blood really shoots.....pull a hackle feather out, lay it nice and neat across the comb, length ways it will clot the blood. scab will form, when scab falls off,,,feather falls off some folks trim by the signs in the stars. if you follow this, find out when the signs are in the feet, or furtherst away from head,.......ive found this to be hooplah. but others swear by it. if you withhold water for a day, he wont bleed as bad. dont worry, you wont kill him even though you think you are. and best practice on a few , to perfect the look. you'll see why i say that.
