So yesterday I butchered my first duck. It took me over an hour to pluck the darn thing. I can usually pluck a chicken in about 15 minutes. In this case I had most of the feathers removed in about 30 minutes and then took another 35 to remove the down. Does anyone have any pointers on how to speed the process? I have 6 more to do and while I may skin one or two, most I want as roasters.
