These feathers are made from common white turkey. Each is hand selected for size and shape and then trimmed, straightened, ironed flat, and finally painted to look like real eagle feathers. Tail feathers are approximately 12 inches long yet lengths vary. The golden eagle are also available in a "secondary" size which average about 10 inches. These are great for bustle trailers (part of a Native American dance outfit) and anywhere else a slightly smaller feather is required.
