    Background: A WINTER FASHION PARADE OF POULTRY FEATHER HATS AND CLOTHES WAS HELD TODAY (THURSDAY) AT THE CAFE ROYAL IN LONDON. THEY WERE THE PRIZE WINNING ENTRIES IN A COMPETITION DESIGNED TO LET MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC SHOW JUST HOW ATTRACTIVE -- AND HOW UNUSUAL -- FEATHERED FASHIONS CAN BE.

    THIS PARADE WAS A PREVIEW OF THE TENTH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF POULTRY FEATHER HATS, PART OF NEXT MONTH'S INTERNATIONAL POULTRY SHOW. ENTRIES CAME FROM HOUSEWIVES ALL OVER BRITAIN. THE HATS ARE MADE FROM UNWANTED DUCK, GOOSE, TURKEY AND CHICKEN FEATHERS.

    THERE WERE TWO CLASSES OF PRIZE WINNING HATS -- THE ATTRACTIVE ONES AND THE INGENIOUS ONES. IN THE ZANY HAT SECTION FOR INSTANCE, THERE WAS A HAT MADE LIKE A FRUIT MACHINE AND ANOTHER LIKE A BASKET OF SPRING FLOWERS.

    BUT THIS YEAR THERE WERE DRESSES AS WELL AS HATS. AND A WELL EARNED SPECIAL PRIZE FOR THE MOST ORIGINAL ENTRY IN ANY CLASS WENT TO MRS. WRIGHT TO LONDON FOR HER "PEARL", A BLUE FEATHER BIKINI MADE OF TURKEY FEATHERS.
