Feathers and First 2 inside Feathers of Secondary Wing Bay

For those who need them-we have complete shoulder pelts available. Listings will be up soon!

Special Info. Note: Market Value for these particular feathers is $200.00 for a single pound!
I have seen these sets of feathers used on costumes for shoulder accents.


SPECIFIC DETAILS:
Complete Set of 19 from 3-4 yr. Gobbler. (Identified by length, width and other specifics)
 I have separated these from the Secondary Wing Bay but are all still intact. For those who are not familiar with turkey feathers, you are getting the full color range here-copper, green, and bronze-all with irridescent hues.
Whole assembly measures (Length) out from base of lower coverts, about 6" on leading edge and 7-1/2" on trailing edge.(edge where the two Secondary Wing Feathers start) The whole set is about 13-1/2" in width-not including the two Secondary Wing Feathers. Some of the leading edge Coverts are a bit "ruffled". Two of the feathers have a few strands of fletching missing but otherwise, this set is beautifully preserved given that this is a spring season bird. Spring season birds are usually heavily damaged due to sparring, constantly flapping of their wings, strutting and of course the damage that is caused if an adequate shot is not taken. If they do not expire quickly, this normally causes significant damage to wings due to "flopping" around on the ground for a long period of time before they actually expire.
 
OUR WARRANTY
We handle our feathers carefully and have inspected this item for defects. Those defects are always clearly stated in the listings.  I always try to highlight the beauty and color in the photographs I take, but I also try capture the quality and/or specific defects in great detail. With any photographs on our listings, you can see up close what you would get! We have never had a single returned item in our history at all-particularly from misrepresented details.
No guessing by the photos that you see on a general listing and hoping for the best when you actually get it!
If we ever sell anything that is not considered a #1 or A+ feather, we will state that in the title. We know that not everyone needs a perfect feather! All of our feathers are properly preserved, treated for insects then frozen to eliminate any other bacteria or unseen pathology. When you receive these feathers, they will be bug free, dust free and scent free. There may be white powder particles  seen on occasion but it is not bugs-it is only the agent we use to preserve them. It is harmless and easily removed with a blowdryer or dry rag. We keep our feathers in temperature and humidity controlled areas at all times. We are extremely careful about any cross contamination with new feathers being introduced to stock. If they are individual feathers or loose feathers they are shipped in narrow sleeves to protect their shape and fletching. If they are loose feathers or assemblies, they are sent in larger plastic sleeve bags. We have good feedback on our methods.


NOTE TO FEATHER BUYERS
Anyone who buys feathers should ensure they are buying feathers that have been treated for mites, tiny ticks and larvae. Turkeys carry several different kinds of each! You do NOT want to introduce this into your home!

GENERAL NOTE TO SELLERS AND BUYERS

We have actually been selling on ebay with a 100% rating since 2003. However, because of on-going and consistent problems with Pay Pal transactions (on their part) we had to close the original ebay account and open a new one in 2009.
We are always open to comments or suggestions about our listings. We will always include more detail than most sellers because in the past, including more detail rather than less has proven beneficial to most people. It also ensures you have all the information you may need and it is clear.

Thanks for visiting. We appreciate your interest in our item.
