Thanks for all the replies folks! I guess I should definitely mention that more so than anything, I use alot of tail/wing feathers as they seem to withstand a bit more. I'll message a few folks, thank you!

I want feathers and have much to give away. Not so special ones; but somehow ended upon a page how to prepare feathers.

But it was in Dutch :'( But written by an U.S. Indian American living here.

Apperently in many counries there a rules to ship them; but before shipping many things to keep them longer (how to wash them, comb them, putting something on them for preserving, including a new layer of wax).

I'm so sorry I can't share that page due to it being in a different language. Maybe someone can find one in English. But for any feather-lovers or people wanting to sell/give-away feathers; if you wash and preserve them in a way ; they can last REALLY long. They right way of preserverving them has a cool side-effect that they can not spread any diceases (and across borders it is a must!).. but having a cool dream-catcher that can last 200+ years :love

Be careful of what feathers you have, as many are federally protected, and cannot be possessed ! Some can only be possessed for fly tying. Some can be had, but not sold.

Please research your states regulations.

Here's an overview of feathers legal in the U.S.
