Re: Another feather theory

 When foxes and dogs try to catch chickens they get a mouth (or paw)
 full of feathers. So, the feathers make for a fluffy target and aid
 in the feathered one's escape.

 I could see that might be an aid smaller birds but possibly not
 larger ones.

Also, it requires long and densely arranged feathers from the start; that's perhaps not plausible.
