Secondary Black Spanish Turkey Feathers Qty: 6 Size: 10-10.5" (Melleagris gallopavo)
These large feathers are from my Black Spanish turkeys. The feathers are black and some have a bit of white at their tips. The fluff is a bleached brownish tan color. The quill bottoms are neutral and strong. The tips are a more blunt and hollow (not with a fine tapered tip). I believe they are still suitable for calligraphy feather pens if that is what you are looking for. Real turkey feathers are also used for ceremonial purposes, arrow fletching, fly tying, dream catchers, feather mobiles, in bouquets, wreaths, costumes and so much more.
•Qty: Approx. 6 Black Spanish turkey secondary wing feathers

Black Spanish Turkeys are listed as Threatened at fewer than 1,000 breeding birds in the United States, with seven or fewer primary breeding flocks, & estimated global population less than 5,000 according to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
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 ecofarm.
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.
