Rooster Feathers in Malaysia
Rooster Feathers in Malaysia are the most common types of feathers used for all kinds of art, craft, jewellery and dream catcher making. Some people call them chicken feathers or bulu ayam in the Malay language.
Why do people love rooster feathers? Because they have that feathery look which gives it a semi-fluffy finishing, and many Malaysians love this kind of effect and design.
In general, these feathers are very versatile and can be used for many types of crafting. So, if you have been looking for different types and colors of rooster feathers in Malaysia, you now know where to find them.
They can also be mixed with other feathers when creating designs, for example, the can be used together with goose feathers to create a beautiful combination.
Other ways include bunching a few of these rooster feathers together for a more fluffier outcome. In general, depending on how you use these feathers, you now have the luxury of choosing the colours you need for your art, craft, jewellery or dream catcher project.
Buying Rooster Feathers in Malaysia
The rooster feathers we sell at Green Daun craft shop comes in over 25 different colors and tones, which is probably the largest selection of colors in Malaysia. They also come in single one-colour or two-tone colours.
All our feathers we sell are sterilized and dyed, therefore they are not plucked straight from the rooster or chicken and sold as-is.
As added knowledge, non-sterilized feathers carry bacteria, hence it is not safe for commercial use. We do not recommend using feathers that are picked up from the ground or directly from any chicken farm here.
Some places may be selling rooster feathers in larger packets, but they are ‘as-is’, meaning that each packet of 20, 30 or 50 pieces are randomly packed.
And through our experience, a lot of the feathers are in poor condition or damaged. So, if you buy a packet of 50 pieces, chances are that you may end up only with 25 pieces that are in decent quality.
Why we highlight the above is because before we got into the feather business in Malaysia, we used to buy from other places and most of the time, we ended up spending more money to get quality feathers, having a lot of damaged ones.
Therefore, when we started Green Daun, we made it a point to sort out all our feathers before packing them and selling them.
