Hey! I'm a little confused about the length of feather and shaft, I'm trying to do pigeon wings and I have the measurements, I'm just confused on what to do for the cardboard cutouts. Do I make all primaries and the same size and just give them bigger shafts? Sorry I'm stupid. do secondaries also get shafts??
