Save the bird in a new folder, and export to Second Life.
You will end up with a set of textures like this, and two scripts:
Birds feet are tricky. They have 3 pointing toes forward, and one backwards. To keep our prim count to a minimum, I am including a nice set of bird feet I made in AC3D:
You can get the sculpts, textures, scripts and the foot for this bird in this Zip file.
Now we are ready to use all these techniques to make the birds nest
