I saw this feather in my back yard in Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA on October 26 of this year. I've been searching for identification of the bird it came from but have found nothing but frustration for my efforts. It is approximately 8 and 3/4 inches (22.5 cm) long. Please help! Thank you kindly in advance.

Looks like a domestic chicken feather to me, but i don’t think there are any wild ones in america. Do your neighbors have any?

Hah! My sister was sure it was a hawk! My daughter-in-law just told me that someone in the neighborhood recently had an escaped rooster but she wasn't sure of the breed. I'd wager it was a domestic chicken! Thanks much for your help!
