A buddy gave me a bunch of ducks and a Ross' goose today. Said I could have them if I wanted to pluck and clean them...uhh, yeah!! So I have the flanks from 2 sprig, 2 widgeon, 5 g/w teal, and one cinnamon teal. I have the CDC from all of the above, with the addition of the goose and a female teal.

As I plucked the birds, I realize that the spotty breast of the g/w teal would make excellet cheeks on hornbergs, etc. a la jungle cock. Anyone ever do this? Should I run some glue along it for toughness?

I also loved the cinnamon flank of the cinn. teal. I think it would make nice wings, and tails of nymphs.

Thanks for the info.
