Well see,that's part of the problem.As to WHY the feathers
fell out,or how it was managed,depends alot on if they will
grow back or not.If they were caught in a door,or someone
pulled them,they may grow back as long as the feather shafts
(in the skin) were not too badly damaged.If it's some kind of
disease,which is less likely,because most don't restrict
themselves to one area,they may never grow back,and if it
is,it should be treated.
