    IMG_2860.JPG I have a game farm bird that is beautiful other than the vent area. I have washed the area a couple times to try to remove the green stain but so far nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

  2. I was watching Bill Atkins video on mounting a mallard last night, He used winks rust and stain remover on the feathers to remove stains. I would obviously research this as I have no personal experience with it myself but just a thought!

    OK, Thanks! I should have thought about that. I just got some from Matuska this past week. My other thought was to use some peroxide but I don't know how that will affect the feathers since I have never done that. It's my bird so if it gets screwed up its only on me.

    Squirt Winks on it...if the stain doesn't come out, it ain't coming out. Just be sure to wash it again in Dawn after the Winks. Winks is very acidic and you must wash it out well in order to prevent acid rot.
