Found one of our meat birds with a cut on its neck yesterday morning. The bird was acting perfectly fine and eating like a pig as usual.
My fiance and I took it inside and washed off the blood and found this small cut. I'm assuming its from another bird stepping on it during the morning feeding rush. I don't think it could have been from an animal, but it's always a possibility.
We stopped the bleeding with corn starch and then flushed it with betadine.
Regardless of how the bird got injured, would the bird still be good to butcher and eat one it is fully healed?
