Duck Wax -  By Junior's

Feathers can be removed by waxing only, or preferably by combining this with the hot water method (25% wax / 75%) water. Waxing will remove downy feathers and pin feathers. The wax mixture should be heated to between 150°F and 185°F, depending on the age of the Duck / Geese . After most of the feathers are removed by the plucker or hand . Allow for the wax to melt and surface to the top than dip into a wax mixture for 10–30 seconds, moving it backwards and forwards in the wax. The aim is to ensure maximum of the wax to the bird. Following dipping, the bird is hung up by the legs to drain. To speed up the wax-hardening process, dip the birds in ice cold water for 1 - 5 mins. Bend the neck back over the body to crack the wax, then peel off the wax and the remaining feathers. If wax & water temperatures is too high you will find the wax coating on the bird will be too thin , if your coating is too think than you should increase the temperature of the mixture.Duck Wax is the primary wax base used in the defeathering process.Based on an average sized Duck / Geese you will use approximately 1 pound of wax for every 8-12 birds.The wax may be remelted, strained to remove feathers and used again and again.
