Geese raised for down do not have a painless life. They are raised for down are live-plucked numerous times in their life. Some places that practice this will pluck the geese the first time when they are ten weeks old and then every six weeks thereafter

Signed! And remember, down from a goose after slaughter is likely inhumane as well- birds force fed for foie gras suffer while alive- so plucking them after death doesn't mean they didn't suffer during their lives.

Noted and signed with this comment ~ Such torture for these gentle birds just so humans can have soft pillows,etc,how could anyone lay their head on a feather pillow knowing the suffering the poor goose has gone through in its entire short miserable life,but then again i expect lots of people are unaware of where the feathers come from. Unimaginable cruelty!!!!!! I would never buy anything with feathers.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx

How "self" pleasure seeking are we humans.!! God calls us to protect and guard the natural beauty, to preserve and even restore...every creature is a part of this living world. We are to fill the the earth with life and to fight against everything that leads to death. We don't need a "down" filled pillow to sleep...it is a mere WANT from those without conscience to the cost of where it comes from.
