Just wondering, as I've never done it before, how do you clean a duck? Do you need to pluck it? I wouldn't think so, because it seems the breasts are the real desirable part. So can you just cut them out?
Jay, I got a feeling you're the goto guy here. Help me out bro.

When I worked as a laborer at a hunting club I was a duxk plukker but only part time. I was of more use diggin' holes and pulling weeds. The machine has a large rotating drum with rubber knobs on it. The knobs pull out the feathers. Without any machine
I'd 'spose it'd be like when I was a kid and had to clean the Sunday dinner chicken. Dip the (dead) duxk in nearly boiling water for just an instant then as soon as it is cool enough to touch start pullin' out the feathers. I've never tried it on duxk but it should work, right?
I'm listening to "The Rolling Stones" "Jump Back" album so if this post don't make sense blame the Stones LOL !

Oh, cut out the anus, cut the neck out. Pull out the gutz. The whole duxk is good to eat. If you were talking pigeon I'd say it's more work to use the whole b1rd but more meat on duxk.

duck

I haven't dressed a duck since I was a kid but we would either breast them or pluck them. Either way.

Duck cleaning

Thanks all. I figured just breasting them would be good. Daisy, yeah, I've done the boiling water thing on Chicken before too. But pluck is such a pain, I think I'd just breast them. You don't get the skin, but it saves a lot of hassle. The rest of the duck I'll give to my aminals. (sic)

weird obsession about not wasting food, heck, I even eat the parsley leaves and orange rind they put on my plate at the restaurant. I stopped eating the wax fruit centerpiece though, too hard to digest LOL.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy your duxk dinner!

This morning I read a headline about a man in California who was arrested for eating cats. I did not read the story, I just assumed his name was Nguyen and went on to other stories.

plukin duuckin

id do the boil trick myself.but you could just skin the whole thing out and either cut it to smaller pieces(quarters) or roast it whole in a reynolds oven bag.not a big duck fan,but i don't like the idea of only eaten the breast meat.my turkey from last year got skinned breasted out and cut the legs to drumstick and thighs,placed in an oven bag on a bed of onions carrots celery and plenty of taters,one tbsp butter and roasted.oven bags are the cats meeeow,or the ducks quack as it were.haha.good luck,if you haven't already goter done!

I also know Sacto has one of the worst down towns I've been in as far as human rejects go. I was worried spending an hour in that bus depot.

yeah, JK says that its a hole and all the guys run around thinking they are cage fighters. He's an EMT there, going to College for a Business Degree. Then he's out of there, think he is moving to the mid west/

i did indeed daisy..

Thought it was that new "hill william" thing you were trying out.. subjects sorta odd for us South China sea brothers anyway lou.. How many times did we eat duck that was pigeon.. hear Pigeon English, or some obscure Asian language, that sounded like for said duxk doing the "deed"..
