During Della's Speech Therapy we have been working on causal relationships specifically the appropriate use/play of an object. This includes the knowledge that a hat goes on your head, that a brush is used on hair, and you talk into a phone. For some reason these relationships are harder for Della to understand. We are always looking for new ways to keep her interested, so we hide objects in a box full of beans or in this case, a box full of feathers! I literally looked away for about 5 seconds and Della flipped the box over spilling feathers everywhere. She wasn't interested in the little brush I had hidden, but she loved eating the feathers!

Is degree of their unnatural color directly related to the toxicity of the dye used in the feathers?

You are very brave. Feathers? What a mess! But I can see that it was so very worth it!
