Why is there only chicken soup?

    My new thing is to rotisserie--I did a turkey at Thanksgiving and a couple of chickens. I'm happy with it, because it ends up making the meal, plus another meal (soup) with the bones. I'm going to do a duck, and I'm going to make soup with the bones... but I'm wondering why duck soup isn't a thing, like chicken soup is.

    Maybe because you can get chicken more readily??? Are ducks a tougher meat than chicken? I have ate wild turkey and it is dry compared to butterball. Lol. I have had duck jerky...it is good.

    Duck is a fairly common ingredient in gumbo in my area!

    It's probably more common for people who duck hunt and eat duck more regularly. I wouldn't have even thought of it although I have made duck a few times.

    I've had duck soup. But I'm a minority that tends to eat any animal and every part of the animal (frogs, ox tails, stomach lining, etc.)

    I'm not a hunter, but I adore duck: it's my idea of what's for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Duck soup has been a thing in my house, but usually not till January, because one duck simply isn't big enough to result in enough bones - and enough leftovers - to make both stock for a decent gravy and soup afterward. It doesn't help that ducks are difficult to find from January to about half past October and that they tend to be markedly pricier per pound than either chickens or turkeys.

    How about rabbit soup? Lately I've been going to Reno about once a month to rabbit hunt, and it's delicious. I have to cook it in the crockpot for over 12 hours, because the meat is very tough, it is wild rabbit. Only the hind legs are used, and backstraps, not the same as domestic rabbits. I make a stew / soup, with all kinds of veggies, it is delicious.

    Rabbit dumplins are good!
