Ornithopod feathers(was Dino feathers=Ptero fur?)

When I was new (I mean by a few days instead of a few months) to this list,
I tried to start a thread about the skin of _Thescelosaurus_, which is 
supposedly punctured like a chicken's, but nobody answered me<:u<(. I wonder 
if the puncture marks could've supported feathers(?). Somehow I doubt that 
they could have been artifacts of dessication, unless a spiked board fell on
of the thescy (Owch!), or something.
