It depends on the kind of duck, and the time of year...Teal, woodies, and mallards almost always get plucked. Others get breasted. If its early in the season, the birds have alot of pin feathers which make the plucking difficult even with a machine.

When I am up at my friends dads club, we use their waxer, we dip the ducks in the hot wax, let it cool a bit then pull off the wax and feathers, very easy.
When we wax/pluck, we then cut the backs out of the ducks, this makes it easier to gut them.
I only do this on a few ducks, maybe 10 big ducks, then the rest of the year I breast and cut the meat off for sausage. This year is going to be pepperoni sticks. :salude:
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?

95 % are plucked , only breast them if they are shot up . This year I have a new plucker to use , will see how that works ?
