Thread: Best way to dispatch large domestic ducks?

  1. #1

    Best way to dispatch large domestic ducks?

    Just wondered if anyone has any advice for the best way to dispatch large domestic ducks (Aylesburys) for the table. I have done about a dozen over time with different techniques but I am never quite convinced that I manage it is cleanly as I'd like.

    Anyone got any suggestions or preferences?

    Hung upside down by its legs so that it's head is at about chest height, gather its wings around its front and hold then get an assistant to pull its neck. Wait for it to stop twitching and it's the perfect height for plucking.

    Traffic cone with the pointed bit cut off to form an opening for the head . Thread rope through the base to suspend , Place bird in, neck sticks through then slit its throat and drain into a bucket .The cone holds the bird in place and no mess .....

    Now il sit back and wait for the backlash .

    I didn't see the OP mention he wanted the ducks Halal? Why wouldn't you just use that method but just pull its neck, gotta be less mess involved?
