my lovely rooster that i have been nursing for sometime now has passed in the overnight. i was wondering if i scortched his feathers would they still come out?? rigimortis has set in and im not sure if that will hold the feathers in as well. i have never taken feathers of a chicken before i just feel he was sooo pretty and id love to save his feathers and not make it so wasteful.

thanks

so sorry he did not make it - you could make a dream catcher with his feathers - sending a hug

i was actually thinking of that, as well as a head dress for my 3 year old nephew. also, i have seen girls with feathers in their hair lately and thought why not my own chickens? my DH thinks in crazy.
