A couple posters asked so I am replying to them for their information....


I buy Naptha in five gallon cans at Sherwin Williams for around $30 or so. I use it for industrial purposes not taxidermy. Just putting this here for informative purposes. VMP Naptha is very low odor and evaporates pretty quickly. I have no idea about it's suitability for doing birds. I do not do them.

I've been using acetone or laquer thinner since I was a kid only later started taking more precautions. I use it cause it gives me the fastest degreasing and evaporation compared to any other solvent. I swish in the bucket about 30 seconds squeeze out and into the tumbler. I dont care that it is expensive, I use what works well and its cheaper in the long run compared to hanging birds and going through a 2 hr washing/drying process.

pidgeons- no problem, but doves such as mourning doves have a quill root that is BARELY seated-  plumage falls out oif you look at them to roughly lol!   So i tend to skin those in a MOUNTAIN of borax followed by swabbing the skin with q-tips loaded with colemans fuel.. Delcate boids require delicate manuvers.

it appears as if a dove is a dove no matter where at- look at them wrong and the feathers go splat. ;)

Yox nailed it... I hav used many solvents.. Coleman was the bomb.... Then the price bombed.... (pre crystal meth) would have been thrown down and handcuffed for the Buggys full i would buy at wally world. Camp fuel sux... Coleman Mineral mix is great. When you are going through 20 birds a week... I concedeed to NO ethanaol Reg gas... It will do 20 birds and then... Kill the weeds. It is for displacing water and speed. We use it in a WIDE Open Area.... Mucho ventilation... Vernelson is correct in stating that Laquer / acetone is quicker... I just cant keep up with drying speed in the south. So i stick with Reg no ethanol gasolina... Wish i didnt have to... costs us over a grand a year...
