Eventually the smaller ones from the body of the Ostrich.

Es handelt sich um die von Natur aus dunkleren ca. 30 - 40 cm langen Federn, die wohl den Großteil des Federkleides ausmachen (im Gegensatz zu den Schwung-/Schmuckfedern an den Flügeln).

... ansonsten vielleicht auch einfach einmal beim Fachhandel (s.u.) anrufen und nachfragen?!
Ein anderer Händler ist www.aviarium.de
