You may have to wait until they moult, make sure they get plenty of cuttle fish bone.

I've moved this to the breeding section hoping a breeder can help you.

As long as they have been pulled out completely then you should see new ones growing in very soon.
On the other hand if they have been broken, then these may not be dropped until they go into a molt which I think should be around 6 to 8mths old.
This can depend on health and diet. So I would be researching what to fed them, and when they do start to molt look at boosting calcium and protein. Over what is accepted as a normal level.

Hey guys thanks for the help . Ive noticed a couple of thin feathers coming through :) so happy. Just another question ive noticed a few feathers on there chest are missing and under there beaks . Do you think this is because there still young and the feathers havent developed properly? Thanks
