Question Where to get macaw feathers

I'm starting my first fan and I want to use macaw feathers. Where do I find them though? I've heard of the macaw feather distribution project (started by dr. reyman), but from what I could find, they are no longer taking requests. I'm skittish about just buying some online through a google search because I don't know how the bird was treated. I want my feathers to have a good spirit. I also can't afford to pay $25 per feather. Where can I go to get them?

I'd say ebay. Personally, I have 3 friends who own macaws locally so I can usually trade with them for bird sitting when they're out of town and other items. But they do get PRICEY!

I have also purchased on ebay and have not been disapointed. Several of the sellers on ebay are bird breeders so they have several birds meaning lots of feathers. Plus you can tell a lot of the bird's diet and living space by the quality and color of the feathers. What size? breed? color are you looking for?

Thank you, I will try to contact the Listia person.

I am open to any types of feathers, as long as they are all tail feathers. I don't even mind getting an uncleaned mix and sorting through to save the best ones. I love blue-gold macaws, but I also love scarlets and of course hyacinth. I've been putting out feelers to find people in my area with macaws, but nothing yet. Any other source ideas are welcome! I'm in the Washington/Idaho area.
