These are so gorgeous. I'm tempted to try this with some from my feather collection, but I imagine I really lack the skillz and will end up with ruined bits of feather everywhere.

What's so special about "FROM a bird, but there's a bird IN it"? Doesn't that describe eggs?

Ok, you make us an egg and we'll be equally impressed.
