Well by "keep them" we mean that females will moult them out but they will grow back in. Males will moult them out but they will rarely grow back in (some males DO keep their pearls although it's very uncommon)

Feathers change over time. All everyone is saying is that a male pearl will end up looking like a normal grey when he's done molting, a hen will still have the pearls. Whether they gain more or not is up to the individual bird. Some pictures for comparison would be good to see.
