Delaware Blue Hen Primary Feathers

Asked November 12, 2014, 3:57 PM EST

Are any feather atlases available of the Delaware Blue Hen Primary Feathers? They might look something like the Bald Eagle Feather Atlas I attached. If not, could you please tell me how long, in general, the Delaware Blue Hen Adult Female Primary Feathers are in centimeters? Thank you for your time.

There are no feather atlases for the Delaware Blue Hen. The bird is modeled after the Old English Game Breed (largefowl). Their feather length would be the closest approximation to the information you are requesting. However, the length of the feathers can vary slightly and there is no written record as to the average feather length for the primary wing feathers in the Delaware Blue Hen.
