Just asking if anyone has in their supplies any of the following;
Used JC cape,
Large bronze mallard,
Any parrot, macaw,
Any other feathers
Also a sus on mustad 80500BL's or similar
I'm talking scraps here, just for fishing flies.

Of course not one response here. Call John McLain at FeathersMc. He has it all and is a good dude.

Do keep in mind that while nearly all of us have the feathers you named and many, many more, rarely do they fall into the category of "scraps".  And if they did, they would by definition not be useable.  The last collection of materials I purchased from a retiring tier took a long while to sort through because, in part,  they did not throw away their scraps.  I did.  There was also a lot of  good materials that I will never need, so I have spare stuff.  But, I would wish to sell that to recoup some of the money I spent on the collection.
