Trade Feathers with Villagers

ACNH - Villager Asking for Feathers.png
If you're having trouble looking for certain colored feathers, trade with your villagers!

Villagers will want feathers of the same color of their outfits. This means that villagers wearing purple Festivale costumes will want purple feathers.

To change the color a villager will trade, wait a few minutes and ask again. You can also enter and exit a building and talk to them again. The feather color they’ll have will stay the same but the color they’ll ask from you will change.

It seems villagers are more likely to offer you feathers that match your Festivale outfit, so we recommend changing it to the color you want before asking to trade!

Swap Stacks of Feathers with Villagers
