Salmon Faverolles Hen Primary Wing Feathers Qty: 6 Size: 6-6.5" (Gallus domesticus)
Slender, slightly curved right and left primary wing feathers from real birds. A tan strip runs along the outer edge. This can be seen most clearly in the photo with the feathers in my hand and the photo of the feathers in their packaging. The rest of the feather is a darker brown-black with a touch of tan speckling. The feather base finishes in a creamy white fluff with strong, pointed, neutral quills. Primary wing plumage is stiff. These type of feathers can become permanently damaged if bent. They are popular as cat toys. Not necessarily added to a cat toy, but given to the cat as-is. Many cats are crazy about large bird feathers. Other uses are more decorative or ceremonial in purpose. Such as feather garland or headdresses. They can also be used for calligraphy recreations and other fine crafts.

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 six 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.
