Has anyone else heard about this? I know it's big in the States but I only heard about it today (from an American).
I'll admit, it looks kind of cool, but more because it's an interesting texture and colour.
That said, there's no way they can be humane as they have to be real to be able to be washed/straightened/whatever.

Even if it was humane, ugh.

Knowing birds had to die just so you could put their tail feathers in your hair?

People are just sad. Fashion is gross.

Agree. On a bit of a tangent... There's someone on eBay that sells cruelty free feathers. Basically they have q farm with lots of chooks/roosters and when the feathers naturally drop this person collects them  happy they are real expensive because they dont drop often but if anyone needs feathers for anything its a cute solution happy

I go to lots of festivals and bush doofs every year and it seems to be the in thing for everyone to wear feathers in their hair... I wonder about the peacock feathers that are appearing more and more. If i find a beautiful feather i most certainly pick it up and i have heaps of feathers in my house that i have found lying around... But i doubt very much that these rooster and peacock feathers are obtained in a way that is humane. People just dont think sometimes.

It's true, not a lot of people give a thought about how these feather extension come into being sad
Personally I just rather not use any myself, there are plenty of synthetic-hair clip-ins that could work just the same, in my opinion anyway.

So do animals die for feathers? I have been wondering for a while where feathers come from. Like the bags of coloured feathers you can buy from craft stores. Are they the feathers from chickens that are to be eaten?

I think it only becomes a problem if they start to wear them in their ass.

peacock feathers usually are, I know people who own peacocks as pets, and they in return recieve feathers in the bucketload. tongue
