thats rather disturbing actually. i could understand taxadermy for ducks and hunted partridge and such... but budgies and cockatiels? no thats too far and too much. those are skins, not even stuffed. thats just disturbing.

thats kinda disturbing.

But if you click on one of the "products" it says that they died of natural causes and their owners would rather not bury them.. but rather see them go to a crafter or something. he does not kill them (thank god)

but still.. thats going WAAY to far.. its almost as gross as that parrotlet necklace.

yeah thats pretty gross and twisted... I would never allow someone to do that to my birds if they died, wow, makes me wonder just how much their owners "loved" them...

I am not a squeamish person at all, it takes a lot to make me squirm, but that seriously made me feel sick. :S
Even if they DID die of natural causes taxidermy of ANY animal just creeps me out and I think it's cruel...

When I got to the full body dead rollers and parakeets, I had to stop. The one where the parakeet has the wings detached, made me feel like I hate being a human...

Its not right is it?
And how many breeders do they know to get so many?
Its sounds questionable to me.

I used to send my toos feathers to Indonesia to stop Indians killing birds for headdresses.
Ebay wasn't around so much then!

Hmm whilst I have no problem with taxedermy of an animal that has died of natural causes and is going to be used as a display to educate people, like in museums etc, I do not understand why anyone would want or let anyone turn their pet into a skin, I don't see the pupose.

It's not like when hunters turn animals they have killed into pelts to wear, who can wear a bird skin?

My concern is where is he actually getting these from, especially the lilac breasted roller I spotted, the antlers and horns and the macaw feathers?

If anyone in that general area can contact CITES and see what their laws are regarding the sale of the skins and feathers of such endangered animals I would be interested to know the answers as I doubt he has any licensing or proof of where they came from. . .
