I don't think I ever got that message. I can't find it in the inbox. Hmm. I'm send a message if you still have them.

I wouldn't even risk shipping anything having to do with a migratory bird. The stuff you buy at the store is from farm raised ducks, not wild birds.
Migratory Bird Act

Specific provisions in the statute include:

Establishment of a Federal prohibition, unless permitted by regulations, to "pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture or kill, possess, offer for sale, sell, offer to purchase, purchase, deliver for shipment, ship, cause to be shipped, deliver for transportation, transport, cause to be transported, carry, or cause to be carried by any means whatever, receive for shipment, transportation or carriage, or export, at any time, or in any manner, any migratory bird, included in the terms of this Convention . . . for the protection of migratory birds . . . or any part, nest, or egg of any such bird." (16 U.S.C. 703)

Okay, I see. Don't bother with it guys. Let's stay in compliance with the law.

I found a line on chicken feathers I think will suit just fine.
