The color "Blue Slate" is a soft gray with darker to black markings. Some feathers may have more markings than others. Turkey feathers are commonly added to centerpieces, dream catchers, smudge wands, Native American, ceremonial and holiday projects, as well as many other fine crafts.

I clean my birds plumes 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.
FYI: The currency in the pictures is a USA copper penny. The ruler is 12" inches long. The penny and the ruler are pictured to help you gauge the size of the feathers.
