Here are a couple of sources that I use for feathers. The natural color of mallard wing feathers is what you want for the Leadwing coachman; the natural gray of the mallard is the color of lead. You want to purchase these feathers in pairs; left and right, because you'll be pairing them, back to back, for the wing.

Just be sure that you're buying pairs of feathers; not all from the same side.
