Black Spanish Turkey Secondary Wing Feathers Qty: 6 Size: 11-11.5" (Melleagris gallopavo)
Dramatic big turkey wing feathers from my very own humanely raised pastoral birds. These loose feathers may look slightly iridescent depending on how the light strikes them. They are stiff and wide with a slight curve and lift. Most of the plumes have white tips (see photo). Some are solid black as shown in all but one of the photos. The quills are strong with clipped and/or blunted tips (not pointed).

Black Spanish Turkeys are on The Livestock Conservancy Watch list (resources) with fewer than 5,000 breeding birds in the United States, with 10 or fewer primary breeding flocks, and an estimated global population less than 10,000.
Do you know where your turkey feathers come from? When you buy from Running Bug Farm you do! My Turkeys are humanely raised. They live outside 365 days a year free ranging on pasture the way Mother Nature intended. I use natural holistic methods to treat my animals and my family. Running Bug Farm is better than organic. Your purchase supports my small Eco farm and I thank you!
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"). A standard United States copper penny (1¢) is pictured with the ruler to further 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.
