they wont reproduce as muscovy cross ducks are infertile!

you could try running a search on here for butchering or processing, heres one i just found. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7978983&hilit=butchering

It is basically the same. Ducks are a little more difficult to pluck but on the plus side, they're much easier to gut due to the larger insides. They don't have a crop, either, I was told only yesterday. That might explain why I didn't find one when I dressed our Muscovy!! :)

i dont pluck these days, cannot be bothered! i cut the breasts, legs and wings off, bone out the wings. we pretty much only make croc-pot curries or casseroles with them(muscovy) now. the necks and offal goes to the dogs and the chickens peck the carcasses clean. yum yum.
