Thanks Kazjaps. Insanity is fine, as long as it's translated correctly.

This one is for people who master English well. Is there an English name for the stage of feather development on the picture. If not, can you write a full sentence what the picture depicts and what would you compare the looks of the feathers to(I lack some words in my vocabulary). And when it opens, what is the name of the part that was opened. If there is both a scientific name and a colloqial name, I'd like both.

I would not presume to speak on behalf of the English speaking world, Wieslaw, but in my bit of the world what is shown in your picture we would call 'pin feathers'. These then emerge to give 'quill feathers'.
But I'm sure other terms will be used elsewhere.

Thanks Hen-gen, it was helpful.

I just add as a curiosity, that PIN FEATHERS on one of my hens were totally BRIGHT BLUE. I wish she kept it on the QUILL feathers.

Is the term "feather stubs" only used for the legs?
