Photoshop - Extracting peacock feathers

Photoshop Troubleshooting - www.photoshopgurus.com
I'm not entirely sure this is the correct thread to post in, but tried to get as close as possible, so apologises in advance.

I photographed multiple peacock feathers (apart of a larger production) and I need to extract the in-between dead space to allow the other layers (and other peacock feather layers) to come through.

So far I used the magic wand, which has done a fairly good job on removing large parts. I've masked and brushed up the edges as much as possible but there's still a huge amount of work to do (around 30 individual feathers). My deadline is Thursday.

Does anyone know of a way to extract the intricate detail (the background colour is yellow, and the feathers are peacocks, not close in colour in terms of what we see, however when I do zoom there is a lot of bleeding of pixels that makes it hard to have an easy contrasting extraction and I think the pen tool is out the question, that would literally a good week)

I'd highly appreciate and suggestions and will give them all a go.

Thanks in advance.
