Through an incision in the chest, the bird is freed from the carcass (meat). It is most difficult to remove the skin from the head and legs. In the tail, the most important thing is to leave the oil gland untouched (from which feathers grow). "Stripping" the feet of the birds, they can turn out "in stocking." It's not scary, then you will bring them to the desired position. When you reach the head, remove it very carefully so as not to damage the feathers and the integrity of the skin. Work with a small, sharp knife (a scalpel is better).Do not forget to close the eyes of the empty effigy with a piece of plasticine / ball.

The skull of a bird is cleared from its contents by rinsing with running water, scraping. Any objects at hand (knife, tweezers). After that, stand in boiling water for no more than 3 minutes. From the whole trophy on hands should remain for the future stuffed animal: an empty skull box and skin with a feather that needs to be treated (etched) in a copper sulphate to prevent development of pathogenic bacteria. The solution is made of the calculation - 1 tsp of vitriol per 200-250 gr. water. A simple brush “paint” the skin of the effigy from the inside. Avoid getting the blue solution on the feathers, an undesirable color will occur. You can clear it, but there is a risk that the appearance will suffer.

Measurements at this stage are played by e last role. Find out what the girth of head, breast, length of legs, wings. Based on the available centimeters, prepare the future frame. Tow (cotton wool, a synthetic winterizer) we wind on a wire framework. On him "dress" the bird. In the limbs of the bird, we push the wire, to give the desired position and that the body of the future stuffed animal has a fortress.

When everything is ready, the bird is stitched to the thread. Apply decorative pins to fixation of the parts to be stitched, (for convenience). The eyes of the bird are made of beads of suitable size. With the help of a scalpel, tweezers, the skin in the cuts is lifted, and the "eye" is in its place. The original color of this part does not really matter, since to give the desired effect, a black lacquer or quick-drying paint is used. With the same purpose, you can handle the bird's beak.
 add up to density
At the end of all the work - inspect the trophy. Feathers that stick out and they can not be laid by smoothing, then you need to gently glue. To do this, at the base of the pen, apply one drop of second glue. Some representatives of birds have bright moments in color (beards, scallops, eyelids, etc.). The killed bird easily loses this feature.You can easily restore the former attractiveness by resorting to nail polish.

In order for the stuffed bird to get a finished look, it needs a stand. A simple saw cut down of a tree on which a wooden knot is bolted will be painted with oak wood stain.
