Re: Heron Herl...

I have purchased legal heron feathers here in the States. They are pen raised birds from what I understand. Natural blue gray plus dyed colors.

Re: Question - Looking for full Melanistic Pheasant skin

I bought a full skin way back in 2010 and had it stolen at a show while I was away from my table. Bought it from Dennis and Jamie Dahlke in Spokane, WA, (509)467-6900, ancientmagicusa@yahoo.com.
