We are processing our ducks today but only doing the breast meat. Are there any special rules before I vacuum seal it?

Yeah, why are you only keeping the breast? Could you at least freeze the legs and offer them to someone else????

I don’t love the breasts and offer them to friends. Carcass goes to broth. Feet are dried for the dog. Nothing goes to waste!

Theyre khaki campbell drakes. We only did it because we couldn't find a single person to take them. We have a neighbor taking the rest of the duck, we just wanted the breast meat. Sadly we were unlucky and got 5 males and 1 female out of 6. We wanted females for eggs. After this whole experience, im making sure to order sexed ducks to help lessen the chances of males. Yes i know it can still happen, but I feel it's a better ratio that way.

I would like to point out that never once did I say I was just throwing out the rest of the duck. Maybe everyone should actually read and ask nicely before jumping to conclusions

Well, to be fair, you said you were processing but only doing the breast meat. It sounds a lot like that's all you were harvesting.

I know you're supposed to let meat rest before freezing. Not sure if they can do that in vacuum sealed bags

Its definitely different. It was my first time ever doing everything. We had someone lined up to do it and they bailed. My poor girl was being picked on (though she clearly was asking for it lol) so I had to do what I had to. Thankfully we have things set up for the future now
