It's difficult to know if we are reading too much into this but I'll give you an interpretation.His feathery hair sounds bird-like. Boo, like Tom Robinson, personifies a mockingbird. He seeks to do good and it would be a "sin" to harm him. He was also cooped up in his father's house like a caged bird.
