Help me identify these feathers?

Certainly not goose. I own several goose feathers, and these look nothing like them. And yes, vulture feathers are around the size of my feathers, which gives me the idea it may be vulture, and, of course, many of the other features.
I think it's a goose feather? I don't if vulture feathers are that long,

True. Also, thanks for the attempt to confirm identification.
Patience is a virtue, feathers are hard!

Heres a brief decription: On the ventral of the feathers, there is a silver shimmering. There about 30 CM long. They were gatheres near open fields, usually near dead animals such as owls, snakes, racoons, and opossums. There were black vultures flying in the area near the time i found them, but then again, i always see black vultures.
OK, you have a few dark, nondescript, damaged feathers. I don't think you're going to get more of an ID than "could be vulture feathers".

I may try to find someone who knows how to do that...
You could get the DNA tested, I guess.
