Over the years, I have had a little bit of everything mammals, reptiles, and of course birds. A lot of the stuff I had was on the endangered species list and for sales of any of these over state lines an endangered species permit was required for both the seller and the buyer. In states sales only require the buyer to have one. This was true to on my waterfowl, Laysan Teal and Nene Geese. I have always wondered, but never wanted to ask (for fear of the answer) but seeing how a lot of the commonly kept species of pheasants are also on this list, why does no one seem to have to have this permit to sell them? Never once in all my years of keeping birds, have I ever seen anyone with a permit for endangered species selling endangered pheasants? Just curious if any of you may know the answer to this??
