Hello,

See the instructions for cooking duck in the chart here under POULTRY.
https://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/charts/meatchart.html
The end cooking temperature should be at least 165 degrees F. It may take longer than the time in the chart since meats, poultry and other foods take longer to cook at altitude. You may pick up some tips from this article:
