I found a recipe here for crispy duck that I am considering making for my family when I go home for the holiday. I figure if I volunteer to make the meat part of the meal then at least I know where THAT came from...and I don't much care for turkey.

Is a 4.25 pound duck enough for 3 adults? I am thinking it might not be so I might take a ham instead but I wanted to ask the question. I've never cooked, or eaten, duck before and it looks pretty small to me. I might want to keep it for ME I don't have a good idea how much meat a duck of that size produces. I would LOVE to take a goose instead, but that is well outside of my budget.
