This is a lot of 16 Guinea Feathers. They were gathered from our Texas ranch where we have dozens of guineas that roam free. These feathers are all natural with no dyes, they have not been chemically treated or cleaned in any way, they are sold as is......even with a little Texas dirt still attached. :)
The beauty of guinea feathers have been sought out for ages......not too many other feathers can give such unique designs to each and every one of them. They are used in wreaths, masks, costumes, head dresses, home decor.......as well as art and crafting projects.
The guinea's continual use of their wings produce a curvature of the feathers, which is visually evident in the photos. This group has 10 that I consider "rights" and 6 that are "lefts"......The feathers measure from 8 3/4" to 9 3/4" long and around 1 1/4" at the widest area. All have their quills intact and when I measured them, I went from tip of feather to tip of quill. The natural color of these beauties is a soft dark brown with white polka dots and partial zebra stripes. So very pretty......and each one is truly a one of a kind!!
Some of the feathers have slight signs of damage, which is common for free roam birds......it is nothing more than a natural result due to usage and age......please take a look at the photos.
This particular group of feathers are what I call Medium Thin Wings......I also have listings for Small and Large feathers of this same type.
Guinea feathers are growing in popularity to use in decorating......they can be added to floral arrangements to give your home that rustic look and used in your decorating needs for that perfect country wedding! The list of uses is practically endless......and what a better way to use something that is all natural and has beauty to boot!!
