    Anyone know where I can get a couple pairs to use in my spread? They can be custom painted ghg or higdons. I want them to look good is the only condition. Thank you.

    We bought a dozen of the GHG's and painted half as Barrows. Very easy to do yourself and probably the best option price wise. I did mine with rustoleum flat black and white and used Duplicolor spray paint for the heads. I used a color called caymen (blueish green) rather than the purple because it matched the birds I saved for samples much better than the purple you always see on Barrows decoys. Then sprayed them with krylon 1311 but testors dull coat would be better. Did 1/2 dozen drakes in a couple hours.
