    I have these two Egyptian Geese a Pair actually that I would like to mount standing in a rock (wall pedestal fashion).

    Does anyone know of a Taxidermist is RSA that can actually get these birds skinned properly for shipment OR
    Does anyone know of someone who can mount them and have them look like I did not do the work myself.
    (quite a few guys appear to be colour blind)

    It appears bird guys are very rare indeed, never mind Good bird guys.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    When I saw the title I was going to say send them to Glen Browning, down in Surrey. He is a world champ and a true artist. However, field prep is another deal all together. Im glad Dennis has already given you what you need. (y)

    Salting geese to import is a terrible idea btw
    Personally if I were you , but this is my opinion and take it for what it's worth get some from here.
    If they are just Egyptian Geese, they have them here many breeders.
    But that is for me. About 50 to 75 bucks a bird.
    This time of year they are really nicely feathered and get better every week.

    I like the price of dip/ship on that option. :

    You will definitely get a better mount from a fresh specimen than from a dried and shipped bird.

    Yeah, and let this guy know what you want to do with your geese. They taking up space in my freezer and every time I look at them, I get hungry.
