Aside from buying the commercially 'dried and died' turkey feathers, I have obtained feathers for feltching from a number of different locations:
- Ebay often has people selling goose feathers for use in arts/crafts projects such as dreamcatchers etc.
- Poultry farms are often a good source as they remove the pinion feathers from turkeys/geese to stop them flying away
- Failing that a walk by any major river will normally yield a few goose or swan feathers, although it might take a while to get a usable quantity of feathers of the same size/wing etc.
Bear in mind that only the pinion feathers from the very ends of the wings are suitable, and that only feathers from the same wing can be used together on one arrow. When choosing feathers, look for a really visable oil line that runs the length of the feather (visable if you hold them to the light)
Hope that this helps
