Re: Pheasant feather - uses?
Almost every feather from a pheasant can be used. There must be good soft hackle feathers. The tips that are used in coachman, forget what they are called. Especially the males. All the iridescent stuff around his head and neck.
I am sure others will chime in who know specifically but I would venture a guess that there are many many uses for pheasant especially the male.
