Howdy! I did mammal work for about 15 years and have not done much with birds. I have been out of taxidermy for about five years. I am getting back in the business and I have four donated turkeys to mount for practice. I have watched the Campbell, Whitehead and Owens videos. The birds are skinned and pressure washed with feet and tail removed and are in the freezer. I have the freeze dried heads back from Boondocks and have finished painting them. I work a full time job and a lot of my weekends are full so I do most of my work at night. I am trying to figure out the best way to proceed. I am now going to take one bird at a time. Each step to be done in a separate evening. The first bird will be standing. The other three will be strutting. 1) Wash and dry tail and get pinned. 2) Test fit skin on body to allow for loose fit. Flesh wings and wheel bones/skin. Freeze. 3) Wire feet and attach to body (bondo) and inject. 4) Wash skin (bunches of times). I don't do gas. Tumble in grit, blow dry. Rebuild wings and close. Mount. My main question is in step four. If I run out of time after the skin is ready to mount can it be kept overnight in the fridge? Do I need to refreeze? Once I retire from my day job and go full time in 18 months this won't be an issue....... I also welcome any suggestions for how to break this process down into manageable sections. Thanks!
