I found this interview with the guys from Blizzard about their raven.

Hope this helps you.

I too need to featherize :) a bird, I am thinking of doing it with shag hair(probebly wont look too realistic).

"J.C.: I built them out of geometry, one feather at a time. Wee this was tedious… Actually I really only built five or six different feathers then I mixed them all around. A bird's wings and tail tend to follow a pretty defined pattern so I was able to use a row of the same type of feather."
