Welcome to our Feather Fun page!

We have created this page for our visitors' viewing pleasure.  Birds have so many wonderful qualities; one of which is their beautiful feathers.  We save our birds' molted feathers cause we can't bear to throw them away.  

This is Roja who lives in California with 3 other Macaws and is wondering what to do with her molted tail feather.  What would you do with it?  Please feel free to send pictures or ideas for this page, and we'd be happy to post them here.  

There are links at the bottom of this page to other feather art sites.

Recently we discovered an artist who does very fine beadwork with feathers.  We sent her some feathers and she made the following lovely earrings and hair ties

These feathers are from our Hawk headed parrot.  They are very unique with the rich red color then tipped in bright blue.

The hair tie is made from red tail feathers from our African Grey parrot and yellow feathers from our Blue-Throated Macaw

If you would be interested in having your bird's molted feathers turned into an earring or hair tie you can contact Wendy Carter of Christiansburg, VA by email at  wind_e3@hotmail.com
