About this cut
These wings are a rich and flavorful alternative to chicken wings. We've noticed them popping up on menus across the country by chefs who enjoy a challenge. As with all duck, the meat benefits from a low temperature cooking, with some searing at the end to crisp up the skin. You could also use these duck wings to make flavorful stock, chulent or stew.
Our pastured ducks are carefully raised by our network of poultry farmers in the mid-Atlantic, where they graze freely and have ample access to fresh water for bathing. Their diet includes GMO-free grain, plus grasses and legumes foraged from the pasture. They are never fed any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products.
Basic Cooking Technique
Slow roast at 225F, braise, steam or smoke to tenderize, then sear or grill to crisp.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

I do not know how they taste yet, but I had worked on these for 2 hours trying to get all the feathers off, it has been embarrassing to serve them to the guest I hope I managed to get them off if it is some left I hope they are not noticeable. I can't wait to taste one. I love this company they ship very fast I my duck necks are always delicious.
I used these instead of chicken wings to make my soup richer, and it was a big hit.
Cooked a pack today by braising first then deep drying. I didn’t noticed until after I braised them that they had lots of feathers. I had to remove the skin which ruined my crispy skin experience. They were otherwise good. From Grow & Behold: Thanks so much for taking the time to review the duck. As noted on the product page at this time, this batch of duck was particularly hearty and the feathers were a little more persistent! We're sorry you didn't get to enjoy the skin!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
