weird decoy paint

Postby firebird » Wed May 15, 2013 4:54 pm

Ordered some wigeon decoys from a major retailer and a well known decoy manufacturer. I have four dozen of them already and am just boosting my spread. They came in a sealed box but the paint was . . . well you can see in the picture. I just laughed at the error but will post it up for all to see. I'm calling them blonde wigeons, or storm wigeon decoys, maybe January plummage dekes, or leucistic perhaps-please feel free to add your own ideas. The drakes also had odd color schemes, they will blend into the flock but I think I am done buying this brand.
