Have one with cancer in the fridge right now, so she's next. Sadly, I know she will not be my last.
I'm sorry. It never gets easy does it. If be right there to learn by your side if I could! Thanks Again for your help.
Thanks and you're welcome. No, it doesn't get easier.
Hi everyone I hope someone can give me some quick advice. I just culled a 2 1/2 year old turkey hen today -when I opened her up I found her belly full of these. Last summer she did appear to have the odd 1/2 day when she would sit and be listless and hunched. She never laid an egg but went broody and started to raise 2 poults I gave her but only for 2 weeks.
My question; is it safe to eat her muscle meat? It is pink and healthy looking and was eating and drinking and acting completely normally up until her demise.
thanks for reply. I took some more pictures this morning - it looks more and more to me like she was initially egg bound and then things started backing up. Poor girl, Im glad I culled her before the egg laying season starts again. It doesn't make any difference in the end, as it looks like the eggs inevitably putrified inside her but I am wondering if it would be classified as salpingitis - which came first , the turkey or the egg
