Boulder hair feathers complaint

A Boulder company that sells popular feather hair extensions, faces a legal challenge from an animal-rights group.

The Daily Camera newspaper reports that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a false-advertising complaint against the company Fine Featherheads. The company's website says the feathers used for the hair accessories are from "cage-free" roosters that are "treated ethically."

A PETA lawyer says the company providing its feathers, Whiting Farms in Delta, doesn't keep the roosters out of cages. The Fine Featherheads website has since been changed.

The newspaper could not reach the company nor the farm for reaction. Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett said the county is evaluating the complaint.
