    Some time ago I saw were somebody either had a rooster body or one they substituted. Does anyone have what to use?? ... I can modify it once I get the body out of the bird. I prefer not to wrap one .... This was a big Rhode Island Red Rooster..
     
  2. I'd wrap one, but if you dont want to do that, carve your own from foam board purchased at home cheapo.

    I'm not very good at wrappings bodies, I prefer to trace and carve.

    Don’t do many roosters but would think a pheasant body would work.

    Rich, Tony Finazzo makes rooster and chicken bodies and they are available through McKenzie, TASCO (Dan Rinehart) or through his own website: finazducks.com
    He has won awards with his Rooster mounts and his Rooster heads are amazing!

    I was hoping to talk to him about his heads and body... I understand he has Covid? I got a Rhode Island Red for free (doing this for myself. His one head is just like the one I got. But as ususal I thought about casting it myself... This would be I'm sure a huge learning curve. Using 300 for the initial cast then Dragon Skin.
