Sarcocystosis, (rice breast) disease


Recommended Posts

A Mallard I shot a month ago had it.

Thankfully I was skinning rather than plucking it. The cysts were quite unpleasant to look at and ran in long lines on both sides of the breast. It was discarded before my wife could see it.

Was the mallard shot off an estuary or inland? I had it last season in a couple of mallard, like you said it's unpleasant to look at. I can understand you discarding it before your wife saw it. I would have done the same too.

On an inland pond. It was one half of a Mallard/Gadwall double. The latter was not infected and we ate it.

No parasite would survive being oven cooked for a long time until hard as leather. 

Researchers either know more than we've been told or being cautious. I'll not be using anymore now thanks Jim👍

Avian flue seems to be more of a threat lately.
