This was on here a while ago...

I think the birds did not belong to the seller, they were givin to him by costumers that had pet birds that died, and didn't want their body to go to waste. They were meant for crafting or religious reasons I believe.

But still it is a bit odd!

That's weird...I wouldn't give my birds to someone to have them skinned! If I bought one of those, it would be to give (part of it) a proper burial. That's too strange.

i read the description and the birds are given to him, but i still think it is wrong! and the birds are in terrible shape, the wings look broken on the tiels. it just makes me sick

It would most likely be used to make "stuffed" animals that people can display in their homes. Like taxidermy.

i dont think it would be because i dont think they have the belly feathers so you couldnt really 'close' it up for taxidermy. it still weird

Ahhh ok, well then. I think it's messed up as it is, they shouldn't be selling that stuff on Ebay...
