    Hi Brian. It looks like you have the legs inserted up to the spur toe. In photos it looks like the spur is half way between the other toes and the body. I think I like the shorter legs. Doesn’t draw your attention to the errors!!!!

      Hi Nancy,
      I was wondering if anyone would notice I had shortened the leg insert.
      I felt the shorter leg length was more in proportion to the body. When painting, the under body feathers will be covering the upper leg.
