    They are coloring normal feathers. At first it was just fancy feathers from select birds. My daughter got purple feathers the last time she got her hair done. The lady even said the feathers came from her birds.

    We do keep pretty feathers for crafts & I trade them for credit for hairbows. When I collect them I freeze them for a wk --- take them out & freeze them again.

    When I taught I would buy feathers for school crafts & always felt they were WAY expensive. Free feathers from someone's coop would have been better!

    A friend at Church was telling me she's gonna get some. I offered her some and she laughed at me! I've got golden laced wyandottes, they're gorgeous!
    Go ahead, pay for dyed pigeon feathers, I don't care.

    I've seen several women with the long skinny rooster feathers in their hair. When done well I think it looks nice. This last weekend I saw 1 woman with several regular short fat feathers, in her hair. To each their own, but I thought it looked like a keychain. [​IMG]

    Imp- sorry I can't remember the feather names. [​IMG]

    Hah! I'll pick up the molted feathers and stick them in my ponytail or bun while I'm out with the chickens, but pay $30 for 2 of them? Never! [​IMG]

    I have a huge variety of colors, sizes and widths in my back yard she could have had for free! We went to a local jewlery store and saw some amazing feather jewlery that I could easily make with the teenager feathers that my pekin is currently losing for about 1/4 what I would have paid in the store. Trends are amazing and more amazing is what people will pay for them.
