    I don't have any to sell, but the local pet store sells them as cat toys here for like $1 a feather. I have seen everything from $3 a feather to $15 for an entire cut train at local animal swap meets. Someone sold a cut Bronze peacock train last swap for $25. I know eBay usually has some for sale as well, pricing there varies though.

    I have paid 1.00 each for peacock feathers at a floral wholesale. I am in the Seattle area. I should have looked on craigslist for them.

    I know in the craft stores they charge a lot for them.....like $5 for 3...... could probably sell them to a crafter or a craft type website.
