I read a story about a bird that did that - don't recall if it was on here and was a Too or not, but I know I heard of it occurring. I'll be fascinated to hear if anyone else has experienced it before...Plus, I'd like to see the video!

Never heard of that situation happening.Milton holds the feather and stares at it for a while,then he chews it up.Better that way than chewing on them while they're still attached!

If Ozzy looses a feather and notices it falling, he will say "uh oh" (a phrase he uses whenever he drops or throws something). When we find a feather of his, we show it to him and ask "is this yours" he will hiss and puff up at it lol. Occasionally we do find him chewing on a lost feather, but this is rare since I collect them quickly and put them in a vase that houses all of his lost feathers lol. If a piece of his down goes floating past, he acts as though he is being attacked by some flying monster rofl. Very fun to watch and we admittedly egg it on lol.

Tootsie sometimes will preen one if I'm holding it near her, but sometimes I do get the fluff-up-hiss display (all for show, she's just playing around). I've put a feather in my hair to see what she'd do and she didn't like it -- I could just see it on her face, so I quickly took it out.

Ha! I keep a big vase of beautiful feathers too. My husband thinks I'm crazy. (Interestingly, I've seen people selling them on etsy. For crafts I guess?)
