Peacock wing feathers

Look for the tan coloured biots - feathering on one edge only. The
hard flight feather. Length 250mm. $4 a pair Limited number at
present. They are cut off the bird and not pulled out.


I've just got some peacock feathers for my wife's arrows from these people. Great to deal with, the feathers come in matched pairs - one left and one right, so I ordered twice what I needed to get a set of left and a set of right.

Not really happy with this photo, so I'll replace it when I get a chance. Brown feather is a primary, blue is the secondary. Binding is done with blue silk.
