Salmon Faverolles Hen Feathers Qty: 30 Size: 1-1.49" (Gallus domesticus)
These little feathers are in shades of earthy colors in creamy white, various shades of brown and grey. I often refer to this size as tiny bits. They are the second to smallest size of plumes my birds offer. They range in size from about one inch to just under one and a half inches long. Some feathers may be wider than others. They all have soft fluff at their base. Some feathers have more fluff than others.
- Qty: Approx. 30 assorted Salmon Faverolles hen feathers
- Size: Approx. 1-1.49" / 2.54-3.78 centimeters
My Faverolles do well free ranging on my chemical free pastures with my other fowl. They are hardy in both hot and cold weather but do better when it's cooler out due to all the extra feathering. They are known for having a nice disposition.
Faverolles chickens are on the Livestock Breeds Conservation Watch List (see resources) with fewer than 2,500 annual registrations in the United States and estimated global population less than 10,000. When you purchase my birds feathers, you directly help me in my efforts to keep these birds.
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 photos of these feathers with a United States Standard ruler which is twelve inches long (12"). A standard United States silver quarter (25¢) is pictured with the ruler to further assist with scale. I have also provided photos of approximately thirty of these feathers next to my hand for those who prefer not to use standard measurements.
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.
