I'm assuming that somebody has had to of made their own down pillow or blanket on here. So, want to share your experiences? I'm getting quail in, and going to be dressing some of them and I want to use as much of them as possible, plus, we could always use another down pillow or two. I'm wondering, do you only use the breast feathers, or can you use all of the fluffy feathers, like ones on the back? How do you sterilize them? Any input would be appreciated. My current plan is to boil the birds to de-feather them, then pull the feathers, boil the feathers that I plan to use (to sterilize them), then put them into a strainer to drain them completely, fluffing them around if need be. After they're completely dry, voila, just make a pillow and stuff, or make a blanket and stuff. Sound reasonable?
