    amazing how complex it really is, the structure of the 'vanes' are like velcro... so, seeing this, the shuttle-feathers are from the tip of the feathers?

    Exactly, this is why is it so hard to make synthetic feather w/ reasonable price. Also the shaft property is another difficult issue.

    Also bear in mind that feathers are supposed to have evolved from reptilian scales...

    Great Post!!! Now we know the reason why the shuttlecock quality droping down.

    Feathers also support the behavior of the bird within its environment and its lifestyle. Feathers that support the soaring flight of an eagle have a much different role than the feathers that protect an American Dipper, which spends much of its time in fast-flowing streams. "

    Most of the Duck or Goose they are now been farmed rather than wild, they almost never face any rain & wind in their whole life and just grown meat for our foods.
