Unless I'm tying buggers.. my short fat polish fingers are too big to hold any hackle by hand for anything under #10.. try using 2 Vienna sausages as hackle pliers and you'll get the idea

The brown hackles arent the best either, but new 'dry fly hackles' on order, so all will be corrected soon enough.
