    as far as federal wise, you don't have to have anything to buy/sell/own mandarins. When you get the wood ducks the seller will provide you with a transfer permit just saying they were sold legally from a licensed breeder and you won't be required to own anything else to keep them. iF you want to sell them you have to get a federal migratory sale and disposal permit witch i think is $70 or so, i maybe off on the price. g http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/mbpermits/regulations/regulations.html then overview- > http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/mbpermits/ActSummaries.html

    application form http://www.fws.gov/forms/3-200-9.pdf

    might check with your state regulations.

    I would recommend getting at least the mandarins. don't have the wood ducks yet.

    Birdman Or KansasKid? Birdman hasn't been on in long while but Kansas is still here but your more likely to catch him in the Ornamental fowl section
