Duck cuts

Whole

Whole bird with all parts usually excluding the head and giblets. A whole duck consists of light and dark meat.

Along with giblets, neck cuts are perfect for making gravy and stocks. These parts can also be fried as a snack or added to sauces for flavour.



3. Wings

The drumsticks are the calf parts of the leg. They come on the bone and consist of all dark meat.
