Snow Goose Question

    Question: Customer brought in a Snow goose and said they wanted to keep the yellow stain on the face of the goose. (ive never had one with that on it before). I told them if it stays after the washing process then it stays, but i wouldnt compromise the cleanliness of the bird. The question is, does that stain stick around or wash off easily?

    Take note of the color and if it washes off then make a paint wash to match and apply it to the feathers after it is mounted

    Its ok to put paint on the feathers?

    Load a picture that would help, sounds like iron stains if it is for the most part it wont wash off.

    Those rusty colored mineral stains won’t wash out.

    Those stains are practically bulletproof unless you deliberately bleach them with a stain remover. Regular washing won't bother them.

    Here lies a problem. The stain will stay on the feathers unless removed (Whinks) If you keep the sain it will look different after washing and drying. The feathers may stack a bit different after wash and dry so the stain will not be uniform. painting is an option but less is more.
