Hornbills

Discussion in 'Bird Taxidermy' started by Bubbas, Aug 14, 2009.

  1. Ok I got a call today about doing a pair of hornbills. My question is this how much different will this be then say a turkey or a duck? Ok a question I never asked before what would be the going rate to do these birds? I have explain to this client that we have never done this type of bird so I would need to look around and "talk" to my taxidermy friends about this before I would take the job in. We do alot of ducks,crows,turkeys every year but this is a whole different thing .I dont want to take a job like this without more information from another taxidermist that has done this type of bird before.

    Thanks for anyones help on this.
