Feed and grain outlets sell anti peck products used to help stop and heal this problem however the problem may persist even after treatment.

If most of the damage is done at night while roosting you may want to separate the hen for a few days. Also consider putting up an extra roost,as she may move away from the bully. She is probably weakening from prior attacks and now is the target for all. Adjust lighting in the coop as any light getting in will cause pecking. Coops need to be as dark as possible for the birds to settle down.

Why are your chickens eating feathers?

Feather picking is often a problem of space in the chicken coop. Hens will peck at each others feathers trying to force the one next to them to move over and after a few days of this it can be quite damaging and lead to cannibalism within the flock. Hens who lose the most feathers can go from being the dominant bird to the victim of flock aggression and death in a matter of days. Once blood is drawn, the victim needs to be removed from the flock until all open wounds are healed.

How would a member of the onondaga tribe wear the feathers on his gustoweh to show that he is a member of that tribe?

Your question supposes that all Onondaga men wore a gustoweh all the time as a tribal identification, which is not true. Furthermore, the idea that all Onondaga gustoweh simply had two upright eagle feathers is also untrue, despite the simplistic illustrations published on many modern websites. Different makers of gustoweh would arrange the feathers in different ways; some Ondondaga examples have just two upright eagle feathers; others have one vertical and one at an angle; others have two eagle feathers and another feather attached as a kind of pendant hanging at the rear; others have many other types of feather as well as the eagle feathers. Different makers would also cut the feathers to different heights, some being cut quite short, others left untrimmed at full height. See link below for an image of a real Onondaga gustoweh:

Animals with feathers?

The only animals living today which have feathers are birds. All birds are in the taxonomic class Aves. In many cases, feathers give birds the ability of flight. Others, such as the ostrich, cannot fly. For all birds, feathers can serve as insulation. Some species, including the peacock and bowerbird, have males with very elaborate feathers which they display during mating rituals. Fossil evidence indicates that some species of carnivorous dinosaurs had primative feathers. This suggests an evolutionary link between reptiles and birds.
