    Does anyone know of a supplier that has artificial turkey beards, or how to make one and what material to use?

    Moscow hide and fur sells tons of REAL wild turkey beards, however, as far as for ARTIFICIAL beards I don't know anywhere that has them.

    Horsetail isn’t quite as course. African porcupine guard hairs will work after you color them. I’ve purchased them online.

    Thanks for that pointer. Never knew they carried them!

    I would say probably around 8 - 9" or so (2 of them). I am thinking of buying a couple turkeys from a seller on here but they don't have the beards.
