Behold the raw duck
Eating Bejing Duck at Xindalu Restaurant in Shanghai

These beautiful birds will soon be put into the oven for roasting.

Ducks ready for roasting get a hook through the neck before they're put into the oven. While these birds look big, there's enough meat on one for about 4 people as long as you're eating other dishes. If you're just two people (or one), order a half-duck.
