Rice Breast!

Postby LETEMWORK21 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:15 pm

In any of the seasons past I've never had any rice breast, now I shot my 2nd mallard this year with it! Anybody else seeing the rise in rice?

My buddy shot one this year with it. We noticed it on the far side of a pond and my buddy wanted to try to sneak it. I watched from a distance as the bird saw him, but it just tried to keep swimming away. Eventually my buddy got close enough and water swatted it. I guess when it gets really bad it can make ducks lame.

Last weekend we shot a blue-winged teal up here, and I thought for sure it was gonna have it because there is no reason a blue winged teal should be in MN in November but it didn't.

Saw it for the first time in a mallard in North Dakota last week.

Saw no reason to waste it, so I put it in someone else's pile.

Ya'll are most likely eating ducks with it and don't know.

Sarcocystis appears to take time to develop visible cysts, and the disease is rarely seen in juvenile birds. In years of poor waterfowl production, hunters may bag more adult ducks and thus be more likely to notice infected birds...

Is Sarcocystis a threat to me or my animals?
Sarcocystis found in waterfowl presents no known hazard to humans ands is not known to be transmitted to humans. Proper cooking destroys all forms of the parasite; however, hunters usually discard unappetizing carcasses containing large visible cysts. Other species of Sarcocystis (S. hominis, S. porcihominus) infect cattle and pigs, respectively, and can be transmitted to humans who eat undercooked meat. Dogs can be the primary host for at least seven species of Sarcocystis, with elk, mule deer, cattle, horses, pigs and sheep acting as secondary hosts; but infection does not cause disease in dogs or other domestic animals. Sarcocystis species commonly found in waterfowl have not been shown to infect dogs or other domestic animals. However, because dogs are susceptible to at least some species of Sarcocystis, we don't recommend feeding uncooked infected waterfowl to domestic animals. Remember, if you cook the meat, you kill the parasite.

absolutely nothing wrong with consuming rice breast ducks fully cooked. Some people are squeamish though and can't get past eating one. It's no worse than some of the parasites in fresh fish.

Referring back to the original picture, what am I looking for as far as clues to indicate "rice breast"?

(I'm on my phone and picture clarity is lacking)

Its under the skin into the breast meat and looks like grains of rice . If you don't peel the skin back you wont see it.
