Default Practical uses for Budgie feathers.

About the only good thing that came off the vile bird we used to have was his feathers. Then again I admired the fact that he didn't care he weighed 3 ounces, he still wanted to take a round out of you. After he died I took the feathers I had saved over the years and used them in some small soft hackle patterns.

My apologies for the poor photos, I am 10 thumbs and no patience with re-takes when it comes to pictures.

Thanks for the compliment. The only issue I have with them is the size of the thread I used kept the heads too large, the next batch will look a bit better but that is more for me than the fish.....Kerry

Great use of the feathers. At least you have that bird in spirit (I mean your fly box).

I've used underfur from my dog. At least all I have to do is brush her for some instead of waiting for her to die.

Great flies. Soft hackles rule.

Nice looking soft hackles Kerry. It looks like that little bird was good for something.

Actually I am not that morbid. He was buried with all of his feathers. I scrounged these off the bottom of his cage at cleaning time over a couple of years.
Thanks for all of the comments, he was a vile bird who is well remembered.....did you try CPR on your cockatiel? (sp)
