Orchid Lilac Rooster Hackle feathers are the pointed ones than span right around the neck. When you see roosters going to fight they puff them up.
They measure approx 4 inches long are made with stripped Rooster Hackle Feathers. The next step is that they are glued and arranged on to a piece of fabric. Stripping feathers is a unique process where the quill is stripped approximately 3/4 of its feather. This leaves behind beautiful feather tips. Decorative beads are then attached to some of the stripped areas of the quill.
These Feather Hackle Plates are available in a variety of colors and can be cut to any size.
