As with most of the wings I received each bird would be different. Preferably only using the first feathers

Following this video will answer most questions.


I prefer the strip method and after attaching to the arrow shaft I hand cut each feather with a pair of regular scissors. I do use only the primary feathers and sort them into groups like Clay describes in the video. I use the secondary feathers when I make my flu flu arrows and use 6 per arrow. Seems to work well.

On average using only the primary feathers that aren't damaged from shot from both wings probably 12 to 15 per bird. If necessary that many more if using the secondary feathers.

edit.....that's 12 to 15 feathers per bird which would be 4 or 5 arrows per pair of wings. More if counting using the secondary feathers.
