Are Replacement Feathers Available?

Submitted by John on 2/16/01. ( )

I was wondering if anyone sells replacement feathers for birds that may have had feathers shot off, field marks. For example, 3rd primary on the right wing of a widgeon or long central tail feather of a Pintail.

I have a guy who shot off one of the two long central tail feathers of his pintail and he's wondering if any replacements are available.

If anyone sells these items, please let me know.

I may be way off base on this, but since you can't sell waterfowl, you probably can't sell their parts. Maybe you could "trade" with somebody!

I was thinking in terms of licensed breeders

I was thinking in terms of dealing with a licensed game breeder. I believe you're right about purchasing parts of wild birds.

Do game breeders sell feathers or is it more profitable to deal in the whole bird?
