This item is one half ounce (.5 oz) of cruelty free feathers. These are not jewelry quality because they aren't perfect. Some are awesome, just kind of small. Some are awesome, big, and have a nick in them or are damaged in some way. Many are incompletely developed, so they are beautiful, but there is no down at the bottom. Some are almost entirely down. These would be great for general crafts, cat toys, kid's projects, etc. There are the occasional wing and/or tail feather that is not in perfect condition. These would be great for kid's crafts and projects. A half ounce of feathers is actually a huge amount of feathers, as shown in the pictures. They could be great as photography props, or for stuffing something small. I raise heritage breed chickens for eggs at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage and process the old hens and roosters for meat. It is important to me to save and use as much of the chicken as possible, so I save and sort and wash the feathers to sell.
I ordered this and two other items. Overall I'm super pleased with everything! They're all beautiful, and the quality is excellent! This listing had a nice assortment of colors, and the majority of the feathers were a good size, at least a few inches long.
It took awhile for my items to ship, but I did order just before Easter so the delay wasn't really a surprise, and the seller apologized for the delay upon shipping the items. I would recommend to the seller to maybe state in a shop announcement or in the message that the buyer receives after purchasing items that there will be a delay in shipping if you know in advance that this will be the case, just as a courtesy to buyers. Of course sometimes life just happens, which is totally understandable. Regardless, I would absolutely purchase from this shop again in the future. :)

Item was perfect. The seller answered all my questions before I placed my order. However I would have preferred tracking. Other than that, great transaction!
