    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.
