Welcome to the Leicestershire Emus and Rheas Feathers Page
 
Emu Feathers (Click to enlarge)
Emu Feathers are unique

They are double feathers - two complete feathers joined at the base.

They vary in size depending on where they are on the body. Neck feathers are short, the back feathers are longer and the tail feathers can be up to 15" long.

You can see from this picture they are softer near the body to keep the emus warm.

The tail feathers are quite coarse while the neck feathers are much softer.

The neck feathers are white with a black tip, while the rest are varying shades of brown.

Emu feathers are good for making flies for fishing.
They are also anti-static so make good feather dusters for cleaning computer screens.

 

 

 
 

Emu feathers can be dyed in a variety of different colours but the black tip remains black.
