Apparently, the disposal of chicken feathers is an issue. they are looking for ways to use them. in plastics, in cement, etc. If I had a source.. I might put them in layers of old PE bags and feathers. heat them up and get a light weight panel.You can fuse old garbage bags together to make tarps. you use aluminum foil and a clothing iron. you peel the foil off when you are done.
