So in this years Broad Breasted Whites I have had two anomalies that I'm looking for input on. The first one died about a month ago. He was sitting next to me when he started gasping and his head turned dark. I quickly processed him. When I was pulling his feathers I noticed a round bulge near the center of his breast bone, but because I skinned him I didn't really look at it too close. It was pretty solid when felt, but it got dark before I could get very far which is why I skinned him, so I couldn't really see it well. Today when I was processing I had one turkey that had a large mass on his chest right in the center of his breast. In other words right over his bone. He had had it as long as I can remember. After I had him all cleaned I excised it. I had to cut through about 3/4 inch of cartlidge to get into it. What came out could only be discribed as cooked egg yolk like substance. It looked exactly like it. The amount was over one cup once I got it all out. I've never seen anythong like this and was wondering if any of you had or if you knew what it could be. I'm stumped. I would have pics, but I need to get a new camera first. And yes he was definately a he so it was not possible for it to be internal laying. He have large gonads and no eggs anywhere in him. Ideas?
