After reading in the newspaper this morning about the horrible way of plucking the geese and eider ducks I am ever so glad that I ever never have had even one thing made of either geese or eiderdown and I never ever will have ! ! !
Me, as many, may have believed they are plucked after not alive anymore and then they end up for food. NO ! ! They are raised just for the down and plucked ALIVE numerous times ! ! ! They are plucked the first when they are only six weeks. They can live up to four years. How terrible painful ! ! ! Tortoure ! ! !
