Cape Crusader


Jungle cock capes, the neck feathers of the male jungle cock, Gallus sonneratii, are in season in India from October to June. The black, white and gold feathers or nails are remarkable in that the gold tip is solid.

Jungle cock capes vary greatly in size, colour and in the quality of the nails. These feathers deteriorate over the season and become split, the colour can vary from very pale to deep gold and the size varies in both length and width. For this reason, capes need to be sold as individual items, and I have provided photos to enable tyers to choose capes appropriate to their requirements.
