    does anyone save their feathers. I know some are used for fly fishing and crafts is there any other reason or thing that can be done with them?

    I keep the cool looking ones. Its funny, my peacock, game cock and leghorn, and barred rock feathers blend togather nicely.
    I use them for a lot of my oldest daughter's craft projects for school.
    I also eventually plan to make an awesome set of fairy wings with them, if Jim will let me use the eye feathers from the peacock. lol
