Does anyone know of any place that does feather imping for parrots in the United States? I'm in Oregon, and I've tried to find a place that does with no luck.
I was hoping to donate some flight feathers to somewhere that does it, if they would take them.

There are places but I’m not certain where. @Macawnutz might know.
We have a few places in Australia that will happily accept healthy feathers for imping.

If you can't find somewhere to donate the feathers for imping, you can also donate them to Indigenous Peoples who use them to create ceremonial pieces :)

This is the only lead I had when I did my scarlet.

I was lucky to find a vet that would do it and he has since moved from that practice.

Thank you
Yeah, I found that website when I was searching online.

Could you possibly tell me the places that take them in Australia?

Brisbane Bird vet and I think the Unusual pet vet was taking them and I believe there was also a few other vets in QLD and VIC that were happy to take them.
It was a long time ago I read about it but I’m sure a few emails or calls to some of the larger bird vets might get some names of places looking for feathers.
