I am quite proud of myself today!! In May my friend had given me 3 duck eggs to put in my incubator to see if they would hatch, we honestly didn't think they would. Well.....all 3 hatched and as it turns out all 3 were boys! As she already had a 2 girls and a boy it wasn't going to work so we decided to eat them! My friend's hubby did the killing, then all 3 of us had a duck each and we plucked! First time ever for me, then I helped to gut them too. Was much easier than i thought it would be, I didn't seem to mind it at all (although every now and again I get a picture in my head of cute little ducklings!!) So, tonight me and family ate two of them. Two of my kids wouldn't touch them as they had 'known' them but the other dug in, lol!! They were gorgeous, nice a juicy and not at all dry! Think I might think about raising chickens for the table now! Are rooster or hens preferable?? I was thinking roo's as you normally have too many of them when you hatch them out???
