Juan Pira's discussion on finding scores has created a nice improvement to our Ning group. There is now a new menu tab, a listing of scores, and links to the various member pages where the scores can be found. For the time being I will be maintaining the the score list.

If the store has uncolored feathers choose them. The coloring makes the feather weaker and effects to the flexibility. Check also that the shaft doesn't have any bends or weak points. Cut the feather where the shaft is about 2 millimeters thick and then shave the plume. If the feel is too stiff, cut the shaft little from the tip until the flexibility is what you desire. The shaft is solid, so the tip needs only sanding to make it smooth. I'll make a new feather this week and take photos of the process. I hope this helps.
