I'm not sure there is an easy way to do that - I tend to clip them out every so often, mostly because we've had feather mite problems and it's easier when they're clipped.......

If you use scissors then it can look a mess......

Having said that, I think try scissors but very carefully, and see what you think - if you want to keep the feather, it's very difficult with clippers.

 Could you try and use a Solo Comb on feathers?

I've never seen anyone do it before but I cant see a reason why you shouldn't. 

(Unless someone with more experience knows of a reason, then I'd be interested!)
