    Hmmm, not sure how any lacing would work as their feathers don't have the typical shape.
    I think it would look like highlights.

    Well that's different, because that has to do with color changing at different lengths of the feather, not the width.

    It would be very hard to discern the pattern. To get an idea of what it would look like, look at the fluff at the rear of a bird in the desired pattern to get an idea of what it would look like. [​IMG]
