Hello, welcome to here. This is a photo of Amun checking out my naked bamboo staves. (wahey!) I'm going to make vegan feathers because ... well here is a quote from Why I don't use ostrich feathers by Tina Warren.
"The feathers are plucked from an ostrich every 7-10 months. Birds have a hood put over their heads, are immobilised in a wooden V-shaped crush while feathers are cut off. That, believe it or not, is the kindest way to harvest their feathers. The other method used on ostrich farms, to ensure quality leather skins, is to remove the ostrich feathers by hand, pulling the feathers one-by-one out of their sockets with pliers while the bird is alive." Tina Warren.
That is some uncool shit right there man. Am I right?
