'Kori' - no honest!

Recommended Posts

For your amusement - this ebay seller swears these are Kori hackles :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: :hyst:

 

He says they are bigger than the Teal I emailed and told him they were and that they are DEFINITELY Kori Bustard - because the breeder he got them off 'has 10 of them in his back yard' (funny he should say that - you should see the flock of Banksian Cockatoos that raid my bird table and pinch all the nuts - sodding pests).

 

Anyway just to ensure you avoid them - the listing is (pic attached):

Yes we have flocks of Red Ruffed Fruit Crow round here too - ours are the ultra rare all black subspecies usually simply known merely as a 'crow' to distinguish them from the ordinary red throated birds.

funny, but in this guys defense...sells some amazing eyed argus feathers

 

Yes - he's actually emailed to say he's withdrawn them - fair play - I think he'd been hoodwinked himself.

And yes I've had some pretty good argus off him - he had a nice pair of side tails for sale in this auction.
