Is Blue Jay kosher for Shiluach Haken?


Is Blue Jay kosher for Shiluach Haken?


The general rule is that if the bird is essentially kosher, even if we do not eat it because it doesn’t have a mesorah, then shiluach haken should be done. However if the bird does not have kosher simanim, then it should not be done. It seems that lue Jays are not a koher type of bird, therefore you should not do shiluach haken on it.
