Default Primary feather not mounted after being snapped.

Hello all. Could anybody please explain to me why my female harris hawk has not moulted her number 3 primary? It was snapped completely at the shaft (about 1 cm from wing) after last season. I thought she would throw it out naturally during the moult. However she has had a nearly full moult now and has not thrown it. I tried to imp the old feather in but then the whole lot came out. Will she grow a new one through now or will it be a next season job? Thanks-andy
