Buff Laced Polish Hen Secondary Wing Feathers Qty: 8 Size: 7-7.5" (Gallus domesticus)
Right and left secondary wing feathers from real birds for crafts. Plumes are long and slightly less narrow than the primary flight feathers. They have a slight curve to their shape. Feathers are not flat, they have a little lift to them and are not flexible. I have taken care to provide equal amounts from each side of the wing (four feathers from each side for a total of eight). They have a pretty orange-buff coloring with a a little bit of fluff at the base. The quills are neutral, pointed and strong. Popular uses include but are not limited to, smudging, fletching, ceremonial headdresses, dream catchers, calligraphy, feather mobiles, garland, and costumes.

Polish chickens are on the Livestock Breeds Conservation Priority 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 continue raising 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 these feathers in 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.
