: What does the expression spitting feathers mean?

Angry to the point of madness with flecks of saliva flying from the mouth of the angry person as they shout and yell at the object of their upset. These flecks were likened to very small feathers or small parts of larger feathers hence 'Spitting feathers'.

Best I can do.
