    We were going to start processing at next week, but today I observe one bird is wheezing. Eating and drinking ok. Would you process this one early, or roll the dice that it will survive the week?

    I had one in my last batch that looked like he was starting to have trouble getting around etc. I tried to hold off another week and lost him. I vote for processing him and any others that look like they are starting to have trouble early. Better that than loose them. IMHO;)
