Default Re: duck.. duck.. now what?

I would keep the wings whole and separate. Some patterns require a section of feather from matching left and right wings. A Swisher & Richards no hackle dun is one example. If you want to pull the wing feathers instead, pull matched feathers from the right and then the left and tape them together as matched pairs.

Pull the body feathers and sort them as to type. Allow to dry completely on a newspaper and store in zip lock bags.

Treat any meat such as the raw parts of the wings with 20 Mule Team laundry borax.
