    Chicken, looks like badger hackle, but hard to tell from those pics.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    Well done Matey
    Yes it is jackdaw crown,we were using it last night to tie up some spider patterns, it is the best hackling material I have ever used for spiders and the olive colour really comes out great.
    We also used it for tying in legs on a few hares ear nymphs and it looks deadly.
    I will put a few photos on later as I am away now to a duck shoot ,this week we are shooting 450 mallard so I should get a good stock of bronze mallard and CDC .
