    I eventually want to do this. I started out with 17 chickens 11+ years ago and am down to 2. I have saved feathers all along.
    I would like to put 17 feathers, fanned out in a frame/shadow box. Have any of you ever done that? Any pointers/tips?
    Thanks.

    No I have not thought of this, but is a cool idea! If you have photos of the original 17 include those? I think you should make it and post pic.

    I saved 3 of my first eggs, used a syringe & needle to blow out the yolks. Had planned to save the first shell from my 6 girls..Stuck my finger [​IMG] doing the third one and gave up the plan….Wanted to Bronze them….like the bronzed baby shoes!!!!!

    Still have the 3 eggshells, don't have the heart to discard. They are so small and cute. Don't know what to do with them, so I keep them.
