Item details

This item is 25 soft, iridescent, amazing feathers from a homegrown, crossbred rooster. There are an assortment of feathers in each bag, some golden hackles, some black with white tipped breast feathers, some red and green/black feathers from his back and wings, and at least 2 tail feathers. There are spots and specks and stripes on some of them, particularly the tail and back feathers, which are also very iridescent.
I generally try to get a good mix in each bag, but with this bird I would recommend getting 2 bags if you really want to be sure to get all the different kinds. What is nice about a single bird with a variety of feathers, vs a bag of "mixed feathers" is that they basically match each other, even if they are different. They look good together. The mixed feathers are an even more crazy variety and don't always go together.
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.
