    I had a guinea killed recently. My daughter and I collected all the feathers that were in good shape. We would like to use them for something, possibly a feather wreath. However I would like to clean them first since I don't know what ate it and what that predator could have had. Plus some of the feathers we find in their dust bath area are simply dirty but in great shape.
