What are duck feathers called?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Are duck feathers called the same names as chicken feathers?
I need to classify poultry feather for a collection.
Through the topic I posted here I was given a chart showing what chicken feathers are all called. Now I need to know is duck feathers are classified the same way? The reason I have a doubt about that is the fact that ducks don't have sickle tail feathers or hackle feathers, or probably even saddle feathers..... ?

Darn it, by your post heading, I thought I was going to be a smart &$# with my response.

But I see you're serious in your post so I'll duc

Breeding Welsummers and Barnevelders.

 

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

I have zero chicken willpower.
