Would like to find out about plucking birds and ?cleaning feathers to use in bed linen. Last time I tried was many years ago when Saskatchewan was dry, ducks few & far between and not terribly healthy - I had ?fleas? in the feathers and gave up!!! We usually breast our birds but I would like to try plucking to save the feathers as well as try some recipes for whole birds. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
