What exactly does cutting the feather do? Does it kill it?

kujdog said to cut the feather then remove a week later, my guess is the feather dries out inside the quill?

where do you cut it at , the base? If you pull it should you pull both sickle feathers? Tater let me bring him to you and borrow that old bird otis showed last year and we will swap back when mine sickles come back, what do you think. LOL

Cutting the feather wand letting it dry out or die or what ever will allow the feather to be pulled out alot easier without damage to the feather folicle or socket or what ecer you call it. I pulled healthy feathers on males already and damaged the folicle and a feather never came back in. Bird had one sickle the rest of his life.

I guess I got a soft spot for the ladies cuz in many varieties the real beauty is in the females. Ginger red is one of them. Brassyback is another and I have always preferred a well colored BB REd female over a male. The females in those varieties are beautiful when right. In shawnee I saw Red Quill for the first time in Shawnee and they really caught my eye. Wish I had more space to dabble with some of those but will be starting a birchen project this year. Now there is another beautiful femal;e.
