Note that I'm assuming it was Marek's because he also had the ocular and the cutaneous forms.

I found one more good picture of a Mareks liver that looks similar:

Thanks @Eggcessive  and @casportpony  Those pics help a lot. Really this liver looks most like the leukosis one and the symptoms from wikipedia match very well. "Symptoms include enlargement of abdomen, bursaweight lossweakness and emaciation, and depression. The disease is more likely to affect chicken around five to eight months of age who are more vulnerable. Green diarrhea tends to develops at the terminal stage.[1]"

 

The time line is the same as my birds, along with weightloss weakness and emaciation, tho these are not noticiable until the end.
