    maybe I shouldn't, but I just
    let them lay, or watch the little
    cannibals eat them.[​IMG]

    X2 feathers are just something else that needs to go into the compost pile.

    Wait, are you saying I should let them lay, or pick them up?
    I want to make sure I'm doing right by my ladies and gentleman

    some are really cool looking, esp the spangled ones from the roos, you know people are actually braiding them into their hair? and fishermen use them to tie flies as well, I don't have a market, but I bet there is one

    seriously, I wish I'd paid more attention, but rooster feathers are now the rage:confused:

    I know, people are killing roosters, plucking their long feathers, selling them for kids hair and fishermen. I am upset with my friends because they have them braided in there hair.. [​IMG] I don't care if they just fall off of the roo, but I hate the fact that people kill them, and take the feathers...... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I see everyone with feathers braided in their hair.. Makes me mad, because I know for a fact that my friends don't have chickens.... [​IMG]

    I just wish that there is a way to stop it! [​IMG] I put it this way: How would you like if chickens killed you, and plucked you hair and braided them into their feathers?

    Ok - I know, that was odd.. But it is comletely true! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
