I would use the philoplumes also called after shaft feather. Try a ringneck pheasant to get a size similar to chickabou. I think standard marabou from a turkey would be too big to match chickabou.

Go to the first match under this search:

Can you post the url for the video so we can see how large the chickabou is?
