    Feather Doonas

    Yes, you may think I've gone nuts - but I've often wondered this. What on earth happens to the ducks/geese/chickens (yes doona companies will admit they use chicken feathers) after their feathers have been plucked and used to fill doonas? Do they get released featherless? Can a full...

    Self Titled Albums
