  • Guinea Fowl Skins

    Huge, full skins packed with gorgeous spotty hackles, these birds are fully mature when they are harvested, unlike most guinea skins available today. These birds are the French table birds, known in France as Pintarde.  Our birds are crammed into an A3 pack with difficulty, most guinea skins that you buy today don't even fill an A4 pack - half the size, and many have brown, immature hackles instead of the mature grey spotted hackles.  We can dye these any colour, but offer a range ready dyed in the most popular colours, including some unusual ones such as Sunburst and Royal Blue - absolutely stunning!  The Sunburst could easily be used to recreate a jungle cock substitute by stripping off some of the side barbs to leave the central, coloured spot.

    Capes from ringneck pheasants, either natural or dyed in an amazing array of colours providing some useful feathers both in the patterned range, but also the white ring provides an incredibly glossy feather when dyed and is a useful substitute for many unobtainable classic feathers.  Dyed bright blue, can be substituted for blue chatterer or kingfisher, dyed Sunburst - a passable substitute for Indian Crow!
