We've made about 3-400 that are very similar to yours. The only difference being some type of wing design lightly painted on the side and they appear to be a little high, maybe cut that bottom piece out and shove them farther in the ground so the feeders are closer to the ground. I'd also paint the silver stake some kind of flat black or brown.

They look good though and I guarantee you can kill geese over them, we've been doing it for years.

Not bad, but like mentioned above, the stakes need to be painted and the bodies look too flat. A little accent and touchup might do it. a very light brown on a stiff haired brush and just whisk streaks into the grey body would probably add a little more realism.

I would leave them round. The only thing I would change, is, instead od using gray paint, I would have used a tan. But they look good and I am sure that you will kill geese over them. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
