Tail Feathers come off

Postby Long Grove labs » Fri Sep 29, 2006 11:52 pm

I have a old Golden Pheasant that my Father shot. The tail feathers have come off. they are in 1 piece. I was wondering if there is any way to reattach them?

If they are all attached, I'd suggest running a pins/pins through the tail, and inserting them back into position under the back feathers. Use a little hot glue or superglue to adhere it to the body. You shouldn't see the repair if done properly.
