Partridge Cochin Rooster Secondary Wing Feathers Qty: 4 Size: 7" (Gallus domesticus)
Real secondary right and left wing feathers. These rooster plumes are black with chestnut brown along the edge. The black may have a metallic sheen depending on the lighting. These are strong, inflexible flight feathers with sturdy opaque quills. There is a touch of fluff at the base. These types of bird feathers are often used in fletching (archery, bolts, darts, javelins, etc.), dream catchers, feather pens (calligraphy), mobiles, wall art, ceremonial headdresses, costumes, smudging, and more.

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 these feathers in my hand for those who prefer not to use standard measurements. The two photos show a loose bunch of four of these feathers in my hand. One with the body up, quills down and the other, quills up and to the side, body down and to the side.
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.
