WILL TRADE FOR YOUR SECONDARY WING AND TAIL FEATHERS. WILL GRIND YOUR PRIMARIES FOR ARROW FLETCHING
Ladies and Gents: For years I have been trading primaries and/or finished fletching for unwanted secondaries and tail feathers. I prefer the secondaries and tail feathers to have their quills intact. I trade 1 pound/ounce of #1 quality raw primaries or 1/2 pound/ounce (pre-weight) of machine ground feathers for 2 ounces/pounds of useable secondary wing feathers and/or tail feathers with quill intact. Now keep in mind the worth of these feathers decrease in half if you shear them from the wing or tail. I have developed a tutorial on this subject as I actually most prefer that the wings and tails be kept whole and separate the feathers from the wing or tail clump on my end. Using borax is the key to this. It keeps the bugs away and slows down or stops the decomposition of the wings and tails depending on how much of the flesh is removed. You can view this tutorial at here
or simply click on "How To" in the menu on the Custom Feathers homepage.
I also trade the "grinding" of your preferred primaries (LW or RW) for the opposite side and/or simply trade primaries for primaries. We do this by weight and not count as the size and quality of primaries widely differ.
I also will "grind" your suitable primaries for a flat fee of $.55 for each feather plus
If you are intertested in trading, having feathers ground, or just have questions, feel free to contact me anytime either by phone or e-mail Thanks! David Mitchell-Custom Feathers
