hi, i have two med. snappers down behind my barn. they have milk crates over them with bricks on them{to kepp dogs out}. they have maggets up the wazoo on head + necks. i was wondering, is this the best way to decompose, or clean out the shell + skull? ive heard a lot of different ideas, but any ideas or tips for me? thanks
ps, how do you get the moss + algae off w/o harming the shell. also what is the best sealer/gloss for the shell?
