Blue Slate Turkey Wing Feathers Qty: 10 Size: 6-6.5" (Melleagris gallapavo)
My real Blue Slate turkey wing feathers are hand packaged in lots of ten ranging in size from six to six and a half inches. Feathers are in shades of light gray with darker marks throughout. The color is called "Blue Slate". These feathers are about the size of a chicken or guineas secondary wing feathers. They are also similar in shape and lift. The quills are strong and what I consider colorless. The color of the quills is very similar to grown fingernails. Turkey feathers are commonly added to centerpieces, dream catchers, smudge wands, Native American, ceremonial and holiday projects, as well as many other fine crafts.
•Qty: Approx. 10 assorted Blue Slate turkey feathers
•Size: Approx. 6-6.5" inches / 15.24- 6.51 centimeters
Blue Slate Turkeys are listed as Threatened at fewer than 1,000 breeding birds in the United States, with seven or fewer primary breeding flocks, & estimated global population less than 5,000 according to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
Do you know where your turkey feathers come from? When you buy from Running Bug Farm you do! My Blue Slate 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 friendly soap, vinegar, and dry heat sterilization.
Feathers are hand packaged and labeled. Labels provide my farms basic information, the type of bird, the quantity, and the size of the feathers.
Feathers are from my Eco-farm; raised, cared for, & loved by my family. I am not feather reseller.
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 do not sell feathers from endangered or protected species of birds. Such as Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Falcon, Song Bird, Parrot, etc. I exclusively sell feathers only from my own humanely raised farm birds on my small Eco-Farm.
