This item is 10 assorted black muscovy duck feathers, from the flank of a muscovy duck. These feathers are highly iridescent. On the larger ones, it is more green, and they lack a lot of the blue seen in rooster feathers. They are very soft and flexible. They naturally have a gentle curl. I include a variety of sizes in the bag, from 4-7". These bags include some of the largest body feathers that I have. These feathers are really very nice, many are very large. There aren't so many of these kinds of feathers on an individual duck, and as I've realized that I've had to raise the price a little because they sell out right away. We raise our ducks naturally. The mother ducks sit on their own eggs and raise their own babies on pasture. In the photo you can see our white muscovy Francois sitting on a nest, with her newly hatched babies under her. Muscovies are not actually ducks, although they are similar. They are very good mothers and most years we have to pay close attention to not end up with far more muscovies than we need. Our muscovies are primarily meat birds, and we process most of the ducklings in the fall. We try to use every part of the animal and respect them to the end.
Beautiful feathers, just as described with super fast shipping!! Thanks so much!!
