Buff Orpington Hen Tail Feathers Qty: 20 Size: 5-6.5" (Gallus domesticus)
Real chicken tail feathers are a bit more messy than the slicker and smoother wing feathers. I think of them as messy feathers. They are often a combination of stiff and floppy. The firm feather quills are neutral in color similar to human finger nails. These natural bird plumes are from my Buff Orpington hens. I have included photos of these chicken feathers on different types of backgrounds in hope of better showing this pretty colors potential. I have also included a natural photo of one of my hens outdoors in late winter.
•Qty: Approx. 20 assorted Buff Orpington hen feathers
•Size: Approx. 5-6.5" inches / 12.7-16.51 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 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.
