Our Price:


20 Upper Major Tail Covert Feathers
From Eastern Wild Turkey


As you can see, these feathers are not perfect. It is rare to find all of these feathers in flawless condition in the spring due to breeding conditions. However, they do have great color and purpose for many different uses. Some can be used to paint on, others for making flies for fishing, others for using just pieces of the feathers. The quills and the plumage is in perfect condition. You can see they have a great range of sizes. the shortest is 4" and longest is 11". I have priced them accordingly, due to their condition. These feathers, in excellant condition usually sell for just under $1 each for the large and .60 for the smaller ones.

We handle our feathers carefully and have inspected this item for defects. Those defects are always clearly stated in the listings. 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 that is only the agent we use to initially preserve them. It is harmless and easily removed with a regular blow dryer. We store 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 assemblies, they are sent in larger plastic bags in large envelopes. We will disassemble these items to save money on shipping for individuals who request it. We also wash feathers for those who are in need of those services.

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!


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.
