How much should I charge for fly fishing feathers?

I have a bunch of feathers that I got from one of my dearly departed ducks, and i want to sell them. What is the usual cost for good mallard feathers? They are in mint condition. There are wing feathers, down (their black & white stripes), and other down which are brown striped.

Unless you can certify that they are free of any mite eggs, you might just want to pitch them, because no one wants feathers that might carry a pest on them.

I've seen feathers like this at the local sporting goods store -- you are correct, they're desired & used by the fly fishermen that like to tie their own flies. I think 3 / $5 is the going rate in my area (North Idaho).

About $3 a pound
