Golden Laced Wyandotte Hen Hackle Feathers Qty: 25 Size: 2.5" (Gallus domesticus)
These real hen hackles are narrow, but not as narrow nor tapered as a roosters hackle feathers. They are a soft black color with long golden centers and a bit of grey fluff at their base. The edges of these natural chicken feathers have short gold colored fringe. Depending on the lighting, the black can show a touch of a blue/green metallic. If the light doesn't hit them just so, the black color will appear solid black with no iridescent sheen.
I have included photos on three different backgrounds in an effort to help you see how my birds feathers look. I have also provided a photo of one of my hens out an about in the late winter.

I clean my birds feathers using filtered well water, eco soap, vinegar and heat sterilization.
Feathers are hand packaged in a neat bunch 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 feathered friends on my small ecofarm in the USA.
All my birds 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.
