Alright fellas, I received some good advice on here asking about using the bird skulls instead artificial heads on gamebirds. I've done this successfully with quail now so I understand the concept. Tomorrow I'll be doing a rooster pheasant and I'm wondering if you guys do anything special with the wattles when using the skull. I remember watching a video where they split the wattles using an artificial head, I can't remember what this was supposed to achieve. If I need to add some fullness to the wattle area, which I figure that's what that had to do with, could I just build up some clay in this area? What about injecting some of that bird feet preservative in there?
