FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many feathers are in the bulk pack?
Our bulk-packed feathers are packed by weight. 1/4lb, 1/2lb, etc. In the description for each item is the approximate quantity. For example, a 1/4lb pack of turkey rounds will have about 40 feathers.
Are your feathers cruelty free?
Feathers play a fascinating role in numerous industries, with the majority being sourced as byproducts of the meat industry. Common birds like hens, turkeys, pheasants, roosters, geese, and ducks contribute feathers that would otherwise go to waste. Crafters and designers have found innovative uses for these discarded feathers, turning what was once waste into valuable materials.
It's essential to note that many feathers come from birds raised for meat production, creating a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to resource utilization. This practice not only reduces waste but also adds value to the entire production chain.
On the other hand, exotic feathers from birds like peacocks, ostriches, and macaws are collected through a different method – natural molting. This process ensures that no harm is done to the birds in the pursuit of their feathers, highlighting a commitment to ethical sourcing.
