The term “ostrich feather” generally indicate a feather known in the trade as a “drab”. Drabs are ostrich shoulder feathers and have a thinner stem and somewhat thinner herl. Drabs are naturally gray in color and come mostly from the female birds. They must be bleached somewhat then dyed resulting in some colors being a bit less bright that the wing plumes that are dyed over white.
