Not sure this is the right place to post but it involves killing a chicken for product so I figured i'll try it out. So I am a live off the land type person and strongly believe in using all the by products possible that come from animals. What is more demeaning than being killed and wasted?? Anyways so I recently butchered a chicken for meat and tanned it for its saddle. worked great i must say. So I was looking further into it and I came across these farmers in alaska who when they kill a bird they use like everything. They use the feathers to make jewelry and stuff, and though jewelry isn't my cup of tea, I was wondering if there was something I could use them for??? If it was a duck it would go into pillows but its a chicken. I am particularly interested in the quil and tail feathers, due to the fact that most the others are tanned in the saddle.. Any imput would be great! thanksoh and how would I go about sanitizing them while maintaing color??
