    A feather is a light growth that forms the plumage and covers the body of birds. Feathers are considered the most complex form of protection found on an animal known to humans. Feathers have warming and water proof attributes and keep animas warm in cold environments. Also they are used by animals for communication, mating rules or as protection against predators and can be found in many different colors. Feathers have been used by humans for the longest time for their softness, interesting colors and warmth. They are used for decoration or as the filling of jackets and coats. In the 18th century extravagant headpieces for women that incorporated feathers were very popular and a sign of wealth. Feathers can be dyed and manipulated and are therefore still very popular in fashion.
