Rooster tail feathers, rooster hackle feathers and rooster saddle feathers are longer and often more coloful than the hen's feathers. If a rooster has black tail feathers they usually shine a radient "beetle green". The hackle and saddle feathers are popular to use as hair extensions, especially the barred or "grizzled" hackle and saddle feathers.
Sometimes availabilty and quantities are limited.
Most chicken yards will have only one or two roosters because the general rule of thumb for chickens is "at least ten hens for each rooster". It is a real shame that it is hard to keep more roosters, they are usually very colorful and quite entertaining but they can get too rough on the hens and with each other. We will almost always have the black "beetle green" tail feathers and brown hackle feathers in stock. Other colors of feathers will vary in availablity according to the donations we receive from bird enthusiasts and from our Cruelty Free Feathers farmers. If you need large quantities of feathers, please contact us and we'll see what we can do for you. People who donate feathers to Cruelty Free Feathers receive gifts from our Cruelty Free Feather products! Regular donors get way cool gifts like our teeshirts with one of our original graphics printed on it.
