"...propose: animation musicale, des bons de loteries sont à gagner avec notre Casanova avec à la clé des lots (jeux de cartes, **plume de faisan**, dragées, civette…)
I know it means Pheasant feather, but is it a game? Is there an English equivalent?
|English translation:pheasant quill|
A quill made from a pheasant feather might be a cut (made with penknife, of course) above a goose or swan feather and be considered a prize worth winning. Maybe?
