As what Kalikolehua05 stated their feathers are of good quality and personally no one I know of have had any problems with the feathers.
hey Kalikolehua05 hope all is well and when are we going to see your booth at the next powwow? Remember this time to check go to Oha.org to get your registared hawaiian card from the state (fed. Id).

Theses feathers are the closet you'll get to the real thing. I've seen them used as roach feathers, fans and bustles; they all look really nice. Most people can't tell they are not real. They are not painted but dyed and the dye absorbs nicely to the feather to help it keep its feather like feel. The shade of the dye matches closely to the actual color of eagle feathers.

At a recent dance, I saw a bustle made from these feathers and a bustle from actual eagle feathers. It was amazing how close they were. I know these folks and the good work they do with their feathers.

If you get real close to them you can. They are the best imitations I have seen as they don't flake or seperate like painted feathers do. This is going to sound dumb, but the look natural instead of stiff.

Thumbs up

I have a set of the real legal eagle feathers for my roach. If you look real close at the quill you can see where it was straightened.

I have some pictures that will show where the quill has been straightened but it is hard to tell. You have to look very carefully at the quill. You have to look very CLOSE.

it's called a blue earred pheasant...the tail feathers are mostly stringy (like peacock), but the outer tail feathers do indeed look like black tips...I bought a damaged lot off of ebay last year....they're REAL hard to come by though...curved more than eagle...smaller than eagle...somewhat irridescent in the tips...check out the pic...

I bought 2 sets of blades from real legal feathers. I was very pleased with the quality. They are soft and can be preened if the vanes seperate. The feathers are wide and tall (14" tall) and the colors and patterns are excellant. Mine needed to be straightened a bit, but I can live with that. Well worth the cost. Nice people with a great product. I'm looking forward to buying a fan set in the future.

I ordered a bustle from them last fall. He had it to me in 4 weeks and its great! I danced with it a few times now and the feathers still look perfect. And as stated, you can really only tell their not real eagle from closer than a few feet.

I was just checking the site out now, and I don't know how they make them...maybe they're dyed? They do look a lot better than any painted feathers I've seen.

Edit- I just read the rest of the thread and saw people talking about dye. That must be it.

I thought I would jump in here with a picture.
The top feather is a painted one from Sioux Specialties.
The bottom one is from Real Legal Feathers.
As you can see, they look pretty good from a distance but once you get within 2 feet, then you can see the brush marks where the dye was applied.
