The feathers will eventually grow back but first the old ones have to fall out during a molt. Even with a short clip the feather quill is still within the feather follicle and a new one does not come in just because the current one was cut. It can take months for all to be replaced. Meanwhile the bird will not be able to fly and will fall to the floor if allowed to try, this you must prevent as it could result in injury to the bird.
