I added his skull to the tank late last night. They are working their magic and should be done in a day or two. Here are some pictures.DSC_6409.jpgDSC_6408.jpgDSC_6407.jpg

There are a bunch of guys out there who have them for sale. The guy I got them from turned out to be a turkey so I won't direct you to him.

Those little buggers are amazing. I'd sure like to get some, but my chickens would like them more.

Correct. For greasier animals like hogs you have to use some different chemicals, though. Arise, save a goose head for me next time you're out and I'll do one for you to see how it turns out.

Very cool. How do you whiten it?
Crest whitestrips, of course! :roflmao3[1]:edit:(whoops! I read that as "How do you whiten teeth?")

I would think the garage or at least out of the house. It is slightly odoriferous isn't it Heath? I mean not something you'd want inside the house. :huh:

The smell depends alot on how much meat you remove first, temperature, and how many skulls your processing. At the peak of the season I run 3 or 4 skulls a week and my colony can get pretty ripe. It's definitely an outdoor hobby unless you like being single with half your stuff. I keep mine in the garage and get no complaints.Scott
