FYI: The longer root is to off-set the flight load that occurs while flying.

Thanks again sailboat. I guess my concern was if possible for her to damage the feather follicle and/or developing an injection. Hard to see that with feathers.

She's acting fine though

Re: Weird feather

Risk of infection extremely rare. If yiu leave to fall out on its own , then just about zero risk to follicle.
