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!

Or maybe they could breed extra long necked partridge...

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.

Bob - I read your PM with a big smile. I will try to send you a reply this week. No time at the moment.
