My wife sees chicken feathers - I see a really fine looking hen neck. Go figure! :D

Ray, those are really difficult to pass up once you pick it up, and if you take it out of plastic and thumb through it, you're a goner. This is a beautiful example of this cape. Nice score.

Quite a few years ago, I bought a couple (actually SEVERAL) hen skins from Dave Roberts that had a dun color near the stem and various brown or goldish colored tips. In addition, I also bought a couple more that the dun color near the stem and dark reddish brown tips, which I call my "Fiery March Brown Hackles". Lovely hackles that look good with just about anything used for the bodies.
