    Anyone gotten any birds back from there recently? Dropped mine off January 2016. They never answer the phone and don’t return messages. The answering machine says today is July 21....

    Ummm I think I would drive up and pay a visit I don’t think I would let some guy that takes that long to do them touch my birds. Also you dropped them off in 2016!!!! I think I would have called or paid a visit like two years ago.

    He has a Gould’s turkey of mine from 2015. I also had to wait a while for an eider and mergansers, but i paid for those soon after they were delivered, and he said they were done and said they were not done. Email seems was the most efficient way to contact him. Ive given up on ever seeing that turkey again.

    I dropped a blue goose off with Jerry on Wednesday. Sounds like he's caught up to the point where the wait should be less than a year.

    I'd go get the bird and the money.. He told me 9 Months when I dropped mine off..

    I've called, left several messages, stopped by the shop, nobody there..

    I'm showing up at his door next week. He either has my ducks--King Eiders.. Or I start small claims court...

    Update? Froelich is one of the "gods" of the waterfowl taxidermy world. It would be good to know if sending birds there is a bad idea or he just had a rough patch.
