Nageories    Nageories come from the back and sides of the goose. Sizes run from about 4" to 8".  Approximatly 15% of the length of the feather is fluff at the bottom, the rest of the feather being smooth with the width at 1  to 2"  tip which is rounded. The feathers have a nice curve to them but not as much as the coquille.
Parried Nageories are created by sanding the underside of the quill untill the feather is very soft and flexible. See terms (Home Page) for Custom Colors. Parried means each feather quill is sanded for a more flexible feather.

Goose Pointers   Pointers are wing feathers also known as flight or spike feathers. They are the first two or three long feathers at the tip of the wing. The left wing feather flue is about 1" to 1" on the left side of the quill and about " on the right side of the quill.  The right wing feather is the opposite, with the wide portion of the flue on the right side. The amount of feathers in a pound will vary depending on the size of the quill. With very large birds, it may differ greatly from the amount listed below. Each shipment is subject to change and we have no control on the size of the quills. (Picure on left is goose schrager, center picture is natural gray goose, right picture is white goose)
