In the past year or so, I've probably given away at least 8 - 10 partridge skins that had bare spots near the neck and the rest of the skin was intact.

It's those little neck feathers that are so useful to soft hackles! Somebody needs to bread a bird with all small feathers!

Received my package today from Cookshill. 10 days from date of shipment to receiving the wings. I should be set now for the season.

What wings did you order? Just curious.

I've only ordered from Cookshill directly a couple times. Each time I was very pleased with their quality and speed.

Sent you a PM (my reponse was probably too long to post)!

Ray, that's one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. You continue to surprise and impress.
