    I am always searching for ways to use my poultry feathers. I process my birds myself and just can't stand to waste their beautiful feathers. So I collect them and my collections are getting a bit large.

    I make brooches with some of the really fancy ones and sell them on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/IridescentDreams?section_id=12337517&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4

    I had lots of these lovely white feathers from a Broad Breasted White Turkey I processed in the fall (he was very tasty!).

    So my son and I used a Styrofoam cone to make a beautiful Christmas tree with the feathers.


    I posted a tutorial on how to make one of these on my blog.


    How do you use your lovely feathers?
