cruelty free feathers: Buff and white rooster feathers, 25 assorted, natural, cruelty free, heritage breed chicken, craft feathers
This item is 25 beautiful, silver laced red feathers from a Polish rooster. They are really nice. The hackles are pretty long. I include an assortment of feathers from the bird, hackles, saddle feathers, some from the body and back. Each one is buff with a white base and white around the edges, some have more white than others. The rounded body feathers have a white lining on the outer edge, the pointed feathers have more red and gold.
I don't trim the down at the base of the feathers, these are natural feathers how they come off the chicken, washed and dried. You are welcome to trim them however you like.
I raise heritage breed chickens for eggs and slaughter the roosters for meat. It is really important to me to use and appreciate as much of the animal as possible and so I saved a lot of the feathers.
If you need feathers from birds that were not killed, these will not work for you. I tried to price my feathers to reflect that. I'm aiming for an intermediate between feathers collected off the ground from living birds, and mass produced, factory farmed birds.
I love my birds and take excellent care of them; they are raised organically and free range, cooped at night for predator protection, and we respect them to the very end. We processed about 30 roosters this year, and it is hard and it sucks and it is necessary for the financial viability of our project. We are a farm, we can't keep every rooster.
It may be of interest for a potential buyer to know that one of our main focus points is on environmental sustainability, our home and farm are off-grid, we haul water, use only wood for heat and cooking, and have a solar panel for our few electric needs.
