Can i make a tail fan?

Is it possible to make an adult size fan with just 5 eagle tail feathers? Should I mix some macaw feathers up with it, like in spottedeagle's fan? Or should I just make a child sized fan...or have someone else make it?

(Ps. If the person with my other 4 tail feathers is lurking around, I want them back. How many times do I have to ask??!!??)

I've seen several adult fans with just 5 tail feathers. The feathers were just spread a little further and had some nice feather extension work and had some small cardinal and bluejay feathers at the base of the Eagle tails.

Yes,5 tail feathers make real nice fans,i have made two of them.You can use body feathers,plumes or hackles at the base,they all look good.

Wyo,
Yep you can make a 5 feather adult fan. There are several ways of doing it. You can set them old time style, with coverlets on the front and maybe some plumes on the back. You can extend them and do feather work and thread work on the extensions. It might not be one of those monster contest fans some ladies like, but you can make a nice looking fan with just 5 feathers.

If you need some help or suggestions just inbox me

Here is one I made with white turkey feathers set old time style, used a few more feathers but it will give you an idea of that particular style of fan.

I'm going to look through my pics and see if I can find you some more examples of different 5 feather fans

"Shake those tail feathers!"

I just had to say that!
