Miéral’s ducks are reared in free-range conditions at farms in the Bresse region. They receive the same feed as hens and poulards. The female ducks are slaughtered at an age of 16–20 weeks, the drakes at 18–20 weeks. Miéral’s Excellence Muscovy ducks have particularly red, lean and delicious meat for true connoisseurs. Please note that delivery may take up to 10 days.
Gutted poultry is also called paunched. It is manually removed after the slaughter to avoid cutting the animal. This prevents the spread of intestinal bacteria. All other organs and the head and feet remain intact, which gives the meat a longer shelf life and provides insights into the keeping of the animal. Only unhurt feet imply high standards of animal welfare.
