    Depending on the type of feather and the bird which it came from, yes feathers can be worth money. There is a large market for down feathers used in blankets, jackets, and pillows among other items. Often the down feathers are plucked after a bird has been slaughtered for food, but sometimes birds are killed for their down specifically. The down from some birds is preferred to others, and consequently are worth more. Goose and duck down are often preferred because their down feathers insulate them in water, so they produce more of them. Eider duck down is considered the finest down and is worth the most.
