Arriving at my mum’s place yesterday there was a present waiting for me. An amazing lady who keeps amazing poultry had been putting aside feathers for me.
I knew she kept chooks and peacocks but I was surprised to also find Galah, sulphur crested cockatoo and a mix of rosella feathers too. When they arrived they were a bit of a mess but I wiped the dust out with my finders and helped the barbules to line up and they look lovely. Even the damaged ones will be perfect clipped.
I love to work with natural feathers, they tell you what they want you to do with them instead of the other way around.
