I tried the search, but I'm not coming up with much. Today is D-day for our 12 week old duck that ended up being a boy. I'm taking him to my parents house to do the deed and then smoke him. My husband and I have processed chickens and quail, so I know the general procedure, but from the little information I've been able to find it seems ducks are a little different. Does anyone have any good tips or hints, or even a photo tutorial? Thanks in advance!

I don't know what would be different about it. But then, I don't know how you butcher right now.

Kill 'em, bleed 'em, scald 'em, pluck 'em, gut 'em, cool 'em, rest 'em.

Maybe a couple of drops of dish soap into the scalding water because the feathers are pretty water resistant.
