If you are a tier who wants to step in the CDC fly tying word you should know that are different types of CDC feathers and a duck will provide from 10-15 quality feathers up to 20 feathers depending of the species.
A duck who is living in cages in farms and don't have the possibility to swim at least once a day will have big and fluffy feathers with strange structure of the barbs and with a very hard stem. Instead a duck who is living in bio farms, eat grass and swim all day long will have clean and delicate feathers with elastic stems and nice and symmetric barbs. Is a big error to believe that a big and fluffy feather is a good one.
Biggest feathers are like that because the duck don't have the opportunity to swim and clean his feathers. For example take a look at the CDC from wild ducks and you will notice that all these feathers are no bigger than 4-5.5cm and are not dense but are very well structured, the barbs are nice and elastic and uniform in ramifications, the stems is shinny and elastic and are very clean.
