Speckled Sussex Rooster Hackle Feathers Qty: 20 Size: 4-4.5" (Gallus domesticus)
Real hackle feathers from my own beautiful Speckled Sussex rooster. These cleaned naturally molted feathers are a deep red brown color and very slender. Some molted feathers have a beautiful metallic blue in the center depending on how the light hits them. Loose hackle feathers are used in feather hair extensions, shorter feathers are often used in bangs and to add volume to both hair and earrings. They are also popular for handmade lures for fly fishing.
- Qty: Approx. 20 assorted Speckled Sussex Rooster hackle feathers
- Size: Approx. 4-4.5" inches / 10.16-11.43 centimeters
I clean my birds feathers using filtered well water, Eco soap, vinegar and heat sterilization.
Feathers are hand packaged and labeled with my farms information, the type of bird, the quantity and the size.
I am not a feather reseller. I exclusively sell feathers only from my own humanely raised birds on my small Eco farm.
Feathers are from my smoking free home, although I do heat my home exclusively with a wood stove as I am almost entirely off of the grid and this is my only source of heat.

I have provided stock photos of feathers with a United States Standard ruler which is twelve inches long (12") to assist with scale.
If you are unsure of the size of feathers that you need, I strongly recommend getting a ruler, tape measure, dress makers tape, etc. and looking at the size/s you need in inches (rather than using the eyeball it in the hand method). First measure where you want to use the feathers and what your expectations are. When you see the approximate length, write it down and compare that length in inches to the feathers I have listed to help you find the size that's perfect for your needs.
