    We took a trip to my aunts house today....took the ducks along . I've never butchered ducks before , but thanks to some advice here...it went better than expected ! How come no-one told me ducks don't fight like chickens after their heads are cut off ! All in all it went pretty smooth except I had 2 that were moulting....so I had pin feathers galore ! After that we went hunting and cut christmas trees for my mom , SD's mom , and ourself . All in all it was a good day for family bonding !

    ( P.S . we used dish soap to loosen the feathers....2 tblsps for 4 gallons...works great !!!!! )

    Thanks again everyone !!!![​IMG]
