    Every article I have seen about harvesting chickens mentions scalding them in order to remove the feathers. I have been plucking wild ducks for about 30 years (without scalding them) and I am wondering how similar it is to pluck a duck as compared to a chicken, and if plucking wild ducks are different then backyard ones?

    Thanks
