Hello, Well I thought I would take a few minutes to post up another Wingtip. This one is not anything complex at all, More common sense of addressing a problem I have been "fighting" with for some time. I spend a great deal of time at the sink, Before and after the washing process trying to completely eliminate the "CRAP", For the lack of a better descriptive word, LOL  ;D from the wheel. Meaning ALL the stuff stuck to the primaries, tail seam, Basically anywhere on the plumage, It seems I was spending a great deal of time trying to adequately remove it as it is unsightly, leaves the feathers looking dirty etc.etc. Its just the "bi product" of the fat/membrane/meat coming off  during the wheeling process  and Maybe its not a problem many others experience? I was getting tired of all the time spent trying to get rid of it so here is my SIMPLE solution. Simply sew the incision up after removing the carcass,wing meat etc. I know some will say that's extra time so I started to time myself, It takes me a consistent 3 minutes to do a "quick" whipstitch to close the incision, I was spending WAYYYYY more time getting all the crap out of the plumage in the washing process. Next just wheel/scissors as normal, when ready to wash simply scrub the still sewn together skin with dawn, RINSE all the "CRAP" off in the sink. then open up the incision and wash as normal. NOW all the "crap" has been removed from the skin before it has a chance to hit the plumage. Another Plus IMO is the fact that the seam can be wheeled VERY well without any problem or fear of catching feathers. Maybe I am "overthinking" the issue or am the only one experiencing the problem BUT I am VERY pleased with the results 3 minutes time takes to accomplish. A VERY clean wheeled skin free from "CRAP" LOL  ;D
The following pics explain the SIMPLE process, Sorry if this Wingtip is to basic BUT it sure has helped my workday be more "pleasant"  :)

 This was a "quickie" WINGTIP for me, I have had multiple request for the "detachable train" on a peacock wingtip so that one will be next as time allows. It just takes time  :)

I wanted to add it is NOT something I do on every bird Just the type that have caused me "grief" in the past, IE. The membrany/fat skins that "spew" and drip crap all over the place as they get wheeled LOL

It makes total sense, but that thing looks hilarious.
I can easily picture it falling out of the sky during a comedy act.

Dude, I love the way you are always thinking outside the box ;D All the birds I am doing for the rest of the month are already fleshed, but you can bet the next bird I do will be given this treatment. I think everything is worth a try :) Do you ever have a problem with the wing tips exiting the leg holes? If so, what do you do about that?

WIth the wings inverted, I doubt there are issues with that.

Great tip!

Phil, I rarely remove the legs. amazingly the wings and legs all fit "inside" no problem. You do have to take care wheeling though as it is easy to make a hole where the primaries are pushing against the area being fleshed, once again just takes a few birds to figure it out.

thats a great tip, Eugene. Now have you come up with a idea to keep the CRAP out of Turkey primaries.....that is one of my hardest issues reguarding wheel CRAP. I did try to zip tie wallmart sacs around them and it helps but they still seem to slide off about 1/2 way through the fleshing. Getting turkey CRAP out of the primaries will make you scream CRAP!!

Jeremy I do this on all turkeys as they are the "crappiest" birds out there,  ;D especially spring birds with the sticky breast sponge.  I am Glad I wasnt the only one having issues with this LOL

Well I can see it working great for turkeys except the primaries that are sticking through the wing inscions....or do you invert a turkeys wings like a duck or pheasant..... I guess you could stick the primaries back through and have them all incased inside..... Hmmmmmmmmm im liking this idea more and more

on turkeys, i lay them flat on a plastic table outside and use the water hose sprayer to clean the wings right up.....only thing that would improve that imo would be if i had warm/hot water on the hose.
