    She said parrotlet looks rough to me. What do you guys think ?

  2. I would agree that it's a parrotlet. On small birds like that, I have found that they can have rough plumage, even when alive. It also has some noticeable molt which contributes to that look. Here's an example of a budgie I did, showing how the feathers can be. Love working on small birds like that!

    Why not use the same formula that you use to price out other things you mount?
