    You can get anywhere from 30 cents to 50 cents a feather depending on the length. Local Florists love them.

    Not sure on the time but,

    I was trying to hatch some out they did not make it but I did get some info before I got started.

    Every year the cock birds loose their tail feathers, the hens may continue to lay eggs but they will not be fertile. I know that it is normal for them to loose them, just not sure on when. [​IMG]

    ETA,
    if you want the guys e-mail addy I can give it to you, he is a HUGE breeder.

    It's that time of year! My males are losing their tales. It's like an easter egg hunt on finding the feathers in the yard [​IMG]

    Yep.. it is that time of year. Mine has lost most of his feathers. I don't think he knows it as he still tries to display them. [​IMG]
