Ocellated / Wild Turkey Cross

Ocellated turkeys are the most sensitive birds to raise in captivity. Wild turkeys are unbelievably hardy. Cross them, and after a few generations you end up with the best of both birds.

Without a doubt, these feathers have an icredible mix of color and pattern.

From evey shade of tan to green, these feathers are beautiful! No two are the same, so if there is a specific shade or size, feel fre and call me.

Tying with Ocellated Cross Turkey Feathers

As turkeys go this is one gorgeous bird offering the tier huge possibilities. The copper wing coverts can be used for iridescent wing cases on stone fly patterns or for wet fly wings.

The grayish-brown mottled tail feather have often been used as an alternative to bustard in married wing or mixed wing salmon flies.

The body and rump feathers offer the artistic tier some beautiful choices for full feather wing salmon flies. Sections of the tips of the tail feathers can be used for tails on salmon and steelhead flies. Crafters will find untold uses for these feathers.
