Jaina has a flight feather that grows in backwards/upside down, even after molts. It doesn't seem to bother her, but at her last checkup the vet said there was slight swelling around the feather follicle because of the way it was growing. I've also noticed that she has to flap harder to fly compared to my male tiel Snow, possibly due to the backwards feather. Is there a way to correct the feather's orientation, or should I just let it be?
