Thanks guys for offer of feathers; I have grouse feathers but no more "philoplume" grouse feathers. Also known as "aftershaft" they are smaller feathers that ride along next to regular feathers and are flexible like hackle but are body feathers. Hard to describe them.

They are also called filoplume or after feathers; they keep the birds warmer in winter.
