    I ordered the standard teal hen head from Mackenzie. I wrapped the neck and went to start taxidermying the bird and the head is to big, can a guy order a smaller one?

    If it's the just the circumference of the head you can Dremel it down. If it's the eye to nostril then you will have to take material out to move the eyes forward.

    If you learn to cast your own, you’ll never have that issue.
    I say that mainly cause the heads we generally buy from our suppliers are those of mature birds and most of the time we get these damm youngens to mount and it just won’t fit. There no hard to cast and it’ll save you time and money to learn this step.
