If the bird is mounted, DON'T! Live? Dead? Information please!
I can't believe this one. I have to echo old fart. If it alive, wait for the molt. If it is dead, you can "scald" the bird by dipping in boiling water for a few seconds and then pluck the feathers. Wash them in dawn detergent, rinse and allow to dry. They will fluff up. If it is a mount......and the list goes on....Go to a craft store and buy some feathers for her outfit!
Grab feathers one at a time as close to the skin as possible. You may need pliers for large feathers.
They really SHOULD be washed.
[see post above]
Please DON'T pull feathers from a live bird!
That would hurt! Right Nancy?
