Butchering Coturnix and black abdomen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm culling some layers before winter and some of the hens have a black, discolored abdomen. It's just hens, no roos have this.  I've spent a couple of hours already searching for images or descriptions here on BYC and the web and haven't found anything yet.

These are about 6 months old, pen raised. About a month ago I switched to Natures Best organic turkey feed. 

These birds are not showing any outward signs of being sick. The vent was not extended before skinning.

 

Any thoughts?
