This is what Mark the vet was thinking of doing to Scooby but he thought better of it , as he thought he would just chew them off again and actually he is right , he removed some of the quills that was chewed then when they grew back he's just chewed them again sigh .
In some cases it would never help and I would not try this with Holly as I am sure she would just pluck them or chew them Jeff needed confidence and not having wings I am sure led him to his own sadness as all he wanted to do was fly and its the one thing I could not of helped him do. just look at the photo I think you can recognise my face as my thoughts had been captured so well by Miisha in that photo and what was I thinking well I was so saddened that I could not make him fly and I was even then worried that no matter how much love I gave I could not give him wings. I will say if I new of this procedure I would of given serious thought to trying it.
This is only my opinion I'm no expert think it only helps most with birds used to flight and maybe none pluckers could be wrong gizmo had his today he mite pull them out once his collar is off hope not
