Sizes and lengths of each feather differs from the photos of course, but each feather is from an adult male at Owl Farm. Each feather is sent in a protective tube and each order of feathers comes with a certificate of authenticity. Because peacocks only drop their train feathers once a year, there is a limited supply and we ask that you only order one feather per household. If it is for a special occasion however, we make an acception for mulitiple feathers or an entire bouquet. Feathers are sterilized, but no chemicles that can dull the color are used. They are shipped and insured, but, obviously cannot be replaced beacuse of the fact that each feather is unique. Male peafowl are called "peacocks" and females are called "peahens" and only males have train feathers. So all feathers are from male peacock at Owl Farm. If you would like female brown feathers, please contact us at email@example.com. Thank you.
