Title: Crows' Feathers


In Montgomeryshire it was, at one time, supposed that if a person picked up a crow’s feather he was sure to meet a mad dog before the day was over. But in other parts it was considered lucky to find a crow’s feather, if, when found, it were stuck on end into the ground.  This superstition lingered long in Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, a remote, hilly parish in Denbighshire. Some years ago, crows’ wing or tail feathers could be seen stuck upright in the ground in many parts of Wales. Alas, the practice and the superstition have come to an end.
