Was the fat on that Can orange and like leather? I had a guy gift me a Can that was so old that it had lead pellets in it. It was very very dry, nearly completely freezer-burned, and the fat was permanently embedded into it's feather-butts and dried like a mummy! :laughing: I had to crush his skull to invert the head, using the bill incision. After about five hours of skinning, fleshing, washing, and more fleshing, and more soaking, and more fleshing, I finally came to the conclusion that this bird was not salvageable. It was a damn shame, because that bird was gorgeous!
