    After about 9 yrs and 200+ birds, I think Im getting the hang of this. Im pumped with the way this pair came out. Thanks to some feedback from the pros, I think these are the best birds I've done. I will also say that the eiders are my favorite to mount. Tough skin and lots of fluffy feathers makes em come together nicely. My wife even said this one could go in the living room. Good thing. 20+ in my office upstairs is starting to get cluttered.

    The hens on these birds are absolutely gorgeous. Probably my favorite hen.

    Feet are painted and injected, but couldnt wait for the heads to dry all the way before I took some pics. Just too excited. Cant wait to get back to MA next Dec to add a few more to the collection.
     
  2. Those came out awesome! I'm still waiting on the Ross I got from you to dry, but it doesn't look as good as these two!
