I was just reading an interesting article about research into the use of chicken feathers for everything from shoes to computer circuit boards to cosmetics. Wanted to share in case you're interested...

One of the things I learned was ~~If you were to try and put all of the feathers plucked back on the chicken, they would only fit where they originally grew. A feather from the right side won’t go on the left." Wow, never heard that before!

What new things have you learned about chickens lately?
