The official reading is は when 羽 is used as a counter. However, it is pronounced わ (or ぱ or ば when voiced), so it is usually written out as わ in furigana.
The "feather" radical 羽 has really taken wing! Although it's the on-duty radical in just six Joyo kanji, 羽 has migrated to four positions in those characters. Its Japanese name changes accordingly.
