For memories?... You know...so you could always have a piece of your tiel when....I don't collect much stuff-I always keep feathers though. (the pretty ones anyway) I even have a cheek patch feather and a crest feather.I have never thought to keep them...lol I just vacuum them up and throw them out I am not much of a collector if stuff doesn't get used I get rid of it.
i know what you mean. I feel horrible if i find a feather on the floor ruined. Not to be mean to my birdies but i love teasing them with their own feather. I will poke it at them and they will hop and stick there wings up. Sometime they will use them as a foot toy like soI usually do. I don't really have a reason except for that it doesn't feel right to throw them away. I don't know why
