The Feather Hat is a wearable Dress Item. It requires 2 Crimson Feathers, 3 Jet Feathers, and 2 Tentacle Spots to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. A Sewing Kit repairs 62.5% of its durability.
It restores 2 Sanity/min while worn.
When worn, the Feather Hat attracts more flying Birds (Redbirds, Snowbirds and Crows) to land on the ground. By default, only 4 Birds at most will land with a delay of 5–15 seconds in between. With the Feather Hat equipped, up to 7 Birds may land with a 2-10 second delay. Birds will still fly away from a character wearing this headdress if the character approaches them.
Don't Starve Together
In Don't Starve Together, wearing the Feather Hat while standing next to a Friendly Scarecrow will attract more Canaries to land. It is also required to adopt a Giblet at the Rock Den, along with a Trail Mix.
- If trying to summon Krampus by killing birds without Wickerbottom and her Books, one can equip this hat while standing on Grass Turf to make a lot of birds spawn, then kill them with a Boomerang or another Ranged Weapon as they land on the ground.
- The Feather Hat was added in the Enter the Gobbler update.
- The Feather Hat used to cost 100 Research points to craft, and it had a value of 10 Science Points when used on a Science Machine.
- Unlike most crafted items, one can actually see what each individual ingredient was used for. The two Crimson Feathers are in between the three Crow Feathers, and the Tentacle Spots are used for the headband. While the hat's side view seems to imply that there may be a total of four red feathers, with only two visible from the front and back, this may be unintentional.
