Haven't seen this covered before, but I was told it was illegal to sell duck feathers. Just wondering as I saw several for sale on ebay?

TIA

It's 100% legal to sell duck feathers. It's addressed in the 50cfr regulstions. Fun read.....

Wow, I'll take your word, long read.
I guess they use them for fly fishing or fishing jigs. Someone had told me years ago it was illegal to sell any part of an animal you had killed, wasn't sure, that's why I was asking

Thanks
