hail call for the Duckdoc

Postby darkwater27 » Mon Jan 27, 2014 1:41 pm

Is there a member on this forum know as Duckdoc?:

If so I have a question, I was cleaning a Wigeon Sat. and found two lumps that look very similar to garbonzo beans, one in the left breast near the bone at the surface and the second deeper in the right breast.

Cut them open and see if they have a lead center. Sometimes birds get calcification around lead shot.
All this for a bowl of borscht.

I did look through the larger of the two lumps, and didn't find any shot, but I was looking for steal, and lead could be a bit smaller....I will look again.

Usually steel doesn't do that because it rusts, gets infected and eventually kills the bird. I've found calcified lead shot in waterfowl with sizes in shot ranging from 8s in ducks all the way up to BBs in geese.

I like how you managed to show us your first band again. :yes:

I saw something similar to that a few years ago in a grouse breast... Reminded me of kindergarten cop and Arnold saying "is nada tumor"
Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.

They look like a feather or follicular cyst to me. The equivalent of an in grown hair to us.

Then all ducks would be redheads because that's popular now. Also, calf implants.
